A new study conducted by the Center for Obesity Research finds that place size can play a huge part in childhood obesity.
Researchers picked 48 children from two first-grade classrooms and observed their eating habits.
The kids were allowed to serve themselves, but they were offered two different plate sizes over the course of eight lunches.
The food was quietly weighed.
As previous studies have shown in adults, children consumed more food when the plate was larger.
