    Thank you for that article! Finally!
    When I got separated 13 yrs ago, I decide to feed my family (6 & 3 yrs old) using bread plates instead of regular plates. I did not want my children to become obese as many were and it seemed quite acceptable! Well, it paid off. They do not overeat and do stop when they feel full. They are usually told they eat like birds when they eat elsewhere...but they are satisfied and not underweight, nor overweight.
    Thank you for validating my efforts. And I agree; changing the environment is much easier to do without the guilt of behaviour control.
