A study in the journal of consumer research found people served themselves more food, if the plate color matched their food color.
Pasta with green pesto sauce on a white plate looked larger than on a green flowered plate.
The theory is: the more contrast, the less you’re likely to eat.
Researchers say the plate that helps you to eat the least amount is one that is blue, that color has the least appealing blend with food.
Just in case you don’t have a any blue dishes, just make sure you food does not match your plate.
