Serve like the French

Smaller portions lead to lesser inputs and lesser 'wastage & waist age'

The portion sizes that are served across restaurants in USA are generally 2x to 3x that I have seen across Europe and some countries across Asia. 

The extra large mindset is a cause of wastage, obesity and diseases. 

What is a provocation or insight that might inspire others during this challenge?

Reducing the size from the 2000+ calorie plates to a 400 caloric meal lead to several benefits from reduction in wastage, storage capacity, reduction in waist size and a healthier world.
