Portion Balance Coalition Research
In early 2018, a Delphi study designed and administered by public health researchers at CUNY resulted in a Collaboration Roadmap with an article published in spring 2019.
In 2019, the Portion Balance Coalition and National Consumers League commissioned a national survey with 4,700 participants, age 18 and over to understand consumer understanding of portions and portion-related behaviors. The report, Addressing the Obesity Epidemic Through Portion Balance: A National Study on Portion Awareness and Attitudes can be found HERE.
