Portion sizes for kids

Does anyone know where I might find information on this? I have googled it, but found nothing that I needed. My kids ages are 18 months, 5 years, 12 years, and 13 years.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Thank you!

  • To expand on the first poster. Childrens stomachs are about the size of their fist. What seems like a very smnall portion to you is adequate for them. Over feeding stretches the stomach leading to chronic over eating

  • Portion size is the size of their fist or palm.
