HR Offers Tip For National Nutrition Month

In the past 20 years, portion size has increased significantly.  Everything has gone up in size; plate size has increased, restaurants offer super-size options and grocery stores now offer value-size items.  Additionally, most Americans underestimate the amount of food they consume and overestimate portion size.

The Office of Human Resources encourages all Canisius faculty and staff to read Healthy Portion Sizes(Adobe Acrobat PDF) for helpful tips for portion control.
