Kitchen scales are great not only to ensure accurate recipies while cooking & for measuring food caloric content but also to make sure you are eating the exact amounts of food your body needs to stay healthy. You may wonder now, why?

You can stay healthier with the help of your kitchen scale. According to the USDA Food Guide Pyramid includes the following recommended daily servings for each food group:

Six to 11 servings of bread, cereal, rice and pasta
Three to five servings of vegetables
Two to four servings of fruit
Two to three servings of milk, yogurt or cheese
Two to three servings of meat, poultry, fish, legumes, eggs and nuts

But a serving isn't just the amount you put on your plate. A serving is really a specific amount of food, defined by common measurements such as cups, ounces or pieces. So if you eat the right number of servings — and use the proper serving sizes — you can be sure to get all of the nutrients your body needs, without getting too few or too many calories.

Exactly what is a serving?

Dietary recommendations are frequently give in “servings” – three to five servings a day of fruits and vegetables, two to three servings a day of meat and so on.

Do you know what is meant by a “serving?” Knowing the size of a serving can help you determine your portions – the amount of a particular food you eat at a given time.
