The portion sizes of some energy dense foods have increased over time, thus a lack of compensatory behaviors to increased portion size may promote overeating and excessive energy intakes. In contrast, small portions might affect compensatory behaviors to offset any portion downsizing. We tested the effect of reducing the portion size of a high energy dense (HED) lunch component on intake in 3-5 year olds. Downsizing the portion of the HED lunch component reduced intake without a compensatory change in intake of other foods. Promoting children’s vegetable intake to reach recommended portions can be achieved by offering a variety of vegetables at a meal, however vegetable variety did not offset the downsizing of the HED component of the meal in this age group. Downsizing and variety are simple, effective strategies that can be individually employed with children to achieve appropriate portion sizes. View this paper.
