It’s no wonder that many Punta Gorda children and teens struggle with weight issues. What is considered a ‘normal’ food portion has been getting bigger and bigger. In some cases, as with gargantuan Punta Gorda fast food soft drinks and SW Florida Costco muffins-on-steroids, it is absolutely ridiculous. And extremely unhealthy.
The findings from three large national surveys demonstrate:
‘Hamburgers have expanded by 23 percent; a plate of Mexican food is 27 percent bigger; soft drinks have increased in size by 52 percent, snacks, whether they be potato chips, pretzels or crackers, are 60 percent larger.’1
Punta Gorda restaurants and SW Florida food and beverage manufacturers are not the only ones sabotaging our children. Portion sizes have increased in homes, also.
If Punta Gorda parents are going to help their children maintain a healthy weight, learning proper portion sizes is critical. If we don’t know the size of a healthy portion, how can we teach our children?
The Mayo Clinic website has a great slide show that helps SW Florida parents and other children’s health advocates understand what ‘4 ounces’ or a ‘half cup’ actually looks like. You can see it here: http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/portion-control/NU00267
