CLEAN YOUR PLATE CLUB
Tuesday, February 28, 2017
Yes, I was part of the "clean your plate" club growing up! Oh no how can you force a child to eat, it encourages overeating. Well not exactly.
See growing up there were five of us at the dinner table and the food got divided up by my mom. It was a rarity for there to be any left overs. See we had to finish everything on our plate because we were not allowed to waste food. We were NOT served the extra large portions that are served today. Back in my day a small coke was 6ozs. There were no jumbo fries, big gulps, super size its so eating everything on your plate was good practice. Additionally there was no snacking in the evening so no food till breakfast.
I more times than not still will finish everything on my plate but my plate is a small plate and I put true serving sizes on my plates. Even with my weight issues I am okay being part of the club!
