Event description

Description

Welcome to our workshop and seminar programme designed to discuss the portion size effect, the science behind the phenomenon as well as strategies which might be used to downsize for portion control. We have two keynote speakers (Dr Barbara Rolls, Penn State University & Dr Eric Robinson, University of Liverpool) who will provide state of the art findings from their research on portion size to generate discussion; also findings from the BBSRC DRINC Downsizing project will be presented and there is time in the programme to permit discussion and reflection. Our aim is to provide a science update and for the group to suggest practical strategies to assist consumers in making changes to their portion size choices. Participants from academia, industry and other stakeholder groups are invited to attend. Also five slots are available for oral presentations.
