Smaller Plates

Studies show the larger the plate and spoon, the more food you eat.

American dinner plates used to be a standard nine inches, but now they've been super sized to 11-13 inches. However, our slimmer European counterparts still use smaller dinnerware.

Participants who received larger bowls and plates served themselves 31 percent more food than those who received smaller dinnerware.

The same held true for spoons.

More ice cream was scooped up by people using larger serving spoons.
