Sometimes it’s difficult to know the right portion size. Use these everyday items to help you approximate a serving of these common foods:

Deck of cards = 3-ounce serving of meat
Checkbook = 3-ounce serving of fish
Four dice = 1-ounce serving of cheese
Baseball = 1 serving of fruits or vegetables
Golf ball = 2-tablespoon serving of peanut butter
½ of a tennis ball = ½-cup serving of rice or pasta
Medium fist = 1-cup serving of cereal
