  6. Potato Chips & Portion Size • One study gave people a bag of potato chips for a snack and a subsequent meal each day for several days. • The package size of the potato chips varied each day. • People ate more chips when the package size was larger. • When they ate more chips as a snack, they did not eat less at mealtime.
