How Big Should the Plate Be?

The actual plate you use is critical in the Plate-by-Plate approach®. Since this is a visual approach to serving enough food, it relies on a simple dinner-size plate as its backbone. This will be the only tool you will need to master this approach—no measuring cups or measuring spoons required! The plate size we recommend (and the one we that we use for our posts) is roughly ten inches wide. ⁠

Plating on side salad plates, toddler plates, paper plates, or plastic plates, are generally too small. The best plates are smooth, without ridges or inner circles (if filling to the “inner circle,” the volume provided would be insufficient).⁠
