Sizing up Meals
Portion sizing helps ensure that your clientele is meeting the guidelines established by research based organizations. To ensure portion sizes are being met, you can refer to the production plan. On the production plan, the portion size will be listed in measurable terms for your staff. These portion sizes should be followed accordingly as they help ensure that meals served meet the nutritional requirements which include calories, fiber, sodium and fat. If the portion sizes are not being followed, than clients may be getting too many calories -which will increase sodium limits for the day, or too few calories. If you have questions about the production plan, please feel free to reach out!
