Overconsumption of food and drink – alcoholic and non-alcoholic – are major contributors to preventable illness and premature death worldwide. Much of this consumption is cued by stimuli in our environments, often without our awareness. Size – including the size of portions, packaging, plates, glasses and other tableware – is one such cue. This talk will summarise the evidence for these effects and our relatively limited understanding of them.

This talk is part of the Chaucer Club series.
