It’s hardly surprising that our understanding of how much we should be eating has become foggy in the past couple of decades. Packaged foods and restaurant and café meals are bigger than they’ve ever been before; feeding our notion that more on the plate represents value for money.

Find out the correct portion sizes for some common foods in my chat with Today Extra.
