You can pick up a box or bag of some arbitrary food product, and it’ll have the nice little standardized nutrition information box on it somewhere. (ObCanada: do you have these things up there? Are they similar to ours?)
My question is: how do they decide what a “serving” is? They always seem woefully small to me. I’m a small guy - 5’5-ish, of slight build. And when the breakfast cereal box says 9 servings, I usually get 3, tops. Similar for most food products - usually a 2:1 or 3:1 ratio. I don’t think I’m a really huge eater!
And a related question: is it my imagination, or has this changed sometime in the past 10 or sp years for soda? I have a dim recollection that there used to be like 2 servings in a can of soda. But I don’t know if my brain is just inventing things here - was that really the case, or has my memory gone wonky? I just checked a few new soda cans I have here, and they all say 1 serving per can. When did it change, and why? I would guess it was some sort of mandated realism, since people mostly drank the whole can? And if so, why hasn’t the same realism been applied to foods?
