Knaust, Gretchen; Foster, Irene M.
Family and Consumer Sciences Research Journal, v29 n2 p101-10 Dec 2000
College students (n=158) used the Food Guide Pyramid to select serving sizes on a questionnaire (73% had been instructed in its use). Overall mean scores (31% correct) indicated they generally did not know recommended serving sizes. Those who had read about or received instruction in the pyramid had higher mean scores. (SK)
