Health Tip: Understanding Serving Sizes

Know how much you should eat

(HealthDay News) -- The nutritional content of most foods is labeled according to serving size. But how much do you know about serving sizes?

The Cleveland Clinic helps put the question in perspective:

  • One cup is approximately the size of your fist, and is typically two servings of pasta or rice.
  • Three servings of meat, fish or chicken is about the size of a deck of cards, or the palm of your hand.
  • One apple should be about the size of a baseball.
  • Two servings of a bagel (about one half of a bagel) should be about the size of a hockey puck.
  • One serving of a pancake should be about the size of a compact disc.
  • One serving of cheese is about the size of four stacked dice.
