Another easy way to manage your main meal serving proportions and boost your vegetable intake is to use our Nestlé portion plates.
A balanced meal is as easy as 1, 2, 3.
- 1 serve of lean meat, fish, chicken, eggs, tofu, legumes/beans or nuts to fill ¼ of your plate.
- 2 serves of starchy carbohydrate foods like potatoes, rice or pasta to fill ¼ of your plate
- 3 serves of vegetables or salad to fill ½ your plate
