instead of using a large spoon to eat a meal ( rice and beans) I use a smaller spoon and sometimes one the girls old baby spoons - it helps to slow me down and takes longer to eat then using a regular soup spoon or tablespoon.

Eating with smaller spoons allows you to savor your favorite treat longer and quench your craving. I scoop out about a half cup of ice cream and eat it with a small spoon. It lasts longer and I feel satisfied.
Okay, so I know it sounds a little crazy, but whenever I am eating something that I want to last longer like a tasty yogurt or an ice cream reward, I grab a spoon out of the drawer for the little one in the house. The small spoons make the treat last longer and makes me savor it more. Your kids may look at you funny for using their silverware, but its worth the funny looks.183
