The updated classic, Portion Photos of Popular Food, 2nd edition, is a convenient and versatile tool for group or individual instruction in classes, hospitals, clinics, outpatient counseling facilities and wellness centers. This book of food models is an invaluable tool for researchers or dietitians conducting food assessments and histories.

Actual-size, full color photographs of more than 100 of the most frequently consumed foods in the US are presented in three portion sizes with only one food per page. Multiple serving sizes allow clients to identify actual sizes of their food choices and to recognize appropriate portions.

A handy, cost effective alternative to food models, this sturdy, fully-laminated, spiral-bound hardcover book also includes photos of standard food measuring equipment and common household dinnerware. Tables of portions shown in volume or measure and weight in grams are included.



































“Using the Hess and Powers book depicting serving size portions is without a doubt the single most in-demand resource nutrition educators ask for when planning and delivering both individual and group presentations. Once the educator shows the pictures, the learner conceptualizes real-life amounts of foods (so beautifully shown) he or she starts to talk in portion-size words and looks back over the text many times to ascertain the next discussed food item. It is so appealing: I use it for many of my general nutrition classes as well as a resource for my senior nutrition students here at the university. What a remarkable achievement!”
