Smaller plates please

In this study, first grade children were randomly given either adult sized plates or smaller kiddie plates. (DiSantis KI, Birch LL, Davey A, Serrano EL, Zhang J, Bruton Y, Fisher JO: Plate Size and Children’s Appetite: Effects of Larger Dishware on Self-Served Portions and Intake. Pediatrics 2013, 131(5):e1451-e1458). The kids took more food when given the bigger plates, and ate most of the extra food that they took. The answer to the obesity epidemic!
