In brief: Portion control

I agree with dr. Valdez-small portions.
In america, we often eat until we are 'full', while in other cultures one eats until about 70% full. Serve small portions of everything, with 'seconds' only after first servings are consumed. An age appropriate serving could be a single bite.

In brief: Dont start habit

Just offer them small portions, they generally know what they need.
'dont waste food' attitude encourages obesity.
