Nutrition Bulletin has published (January 2019) a Virtual Issue (all papers free to download) on ‘Portion size and appetite control’, to coincide with the launch of the British Nutrition Foundation’s (BNF) practical guide on portion sizes ‘Find Your Balance’, which complements the UK government’s Eatwell Guide.
