  1. Depicted serving size: cereal packaging pictures exaggerate serving sizes and promote over-serving (Tal et al, 2017)                                                                                                          Cereal packages display serving sizes approximately 65% larger than suggested serving sizes. The serving size depicted on packaging in turn influences the amount of cereal consumers serve themselves, such that larger depicted serving sizes lead to larger servings, regardless of the verbally suggested serving size on nutrition labels.
