That the Parliament welcomes the guide produced by the British Nutrition Foundation, Find your balance; understands that the guide aims to help tackle growing portion sizes and promote a balanced diet; notes that portion size is not often considered when it comes to eating healthily, despite being a key factor in diet; understands that the guide offers practical measures for portion sizes through the use of hands and spoons with, for example, two handfuls of dried pasta or rice being roughly 75g; appreciates the spotlight that this guide shines on how best to achieve a healthy diet, and believes that there needs to be more emphasis on the quantity of food that people eat, as well as the quality.
