B&M split portion dinner plate
The plate is roughly divided up based on the handy nutrition wheel we were all taught as kids (but don’t always stick to.) The plate recommends half a plate of vegetables, a quarter for carbohydrates such as potato and pasta, and a quarter for protein such as salmon and eggs.
Now, confession time. Who else has been ladling a vegetable potion size of pasta and potatoes onto their plate? Just us?
The portions outlined on the plate are roughly in line with the NHS Eatwell guide. However, the plate has grouped dairy under protein. So before you start allowing yourself a quarter plate full of cheese, the NHS recommends you load only an eighth of your plate up with dairy. You can then make up the rest of the quarter with proteins such as egg, fish and chickpeas.
