  • Hershey's Moderation Nation Whether it’s underestimating portion sizes, not having time for regular activity breaks or to plan and cook meals, despite our best intentions, balanced living can be a challenge. That’s why the HERSHEY CENTER FOR HEALTH & NUTRITION has launched MODERATION NATION to help people access practical tips, tools and resources for achieving energy balance (nutrition and physical activity).

For on-the-go needs, the new Moderation Nation iPhone app, which is free, will reward you for the activity you’re already doing, while encouraging you to do even more in a way that suits your busy lifestyle. With an easy-to-read tracker and a comprehensive list of activities to choose from, you can earn badges for your progress and go from a Starting Gun to a Healthy Hero!

This site offers great meal planning ideas based on your family lifestyle: single, family with and with out kids. It also shows portion distortion, they show you, in pictures, what the actual size of  what 3 oz. of meat should look like or that 1/2 cup of noodles should be about. Moderation Nation also states the moderation is the key, and dietitians agree that up to 100 calories of chocolate can be consumed daily! Great news for me!

The Moderation Nation Web Site provides a host of new tools for you:

  • Recipes and Expert Tips. Here you’ll find advice from Cheryl Forberg, registered dietitian (RD) for NBC’s The Biggest Loser, award-winning chef and New York Times best-selling cookbook author
    • Additional recipes and tips from Regina Ragone, Food Director at Family Circle magazine; Keri Glassman, author of the O2 diet; and Liz Ward, author of Expect the Best Pregnancy.
  • Moderation Menus. Seven-day meal plans – with snack ideas – that will help you plan out your week. Each menu is based on an individual lifestyle, such as Single, Adults with Kids and Adults with No Kids.
  • Balance the Meal. This cool balancer tool allows you to input your main dish and its preparation method; in return, you’ll receive ideas for complementary side dishes that round out the meal smartly.
  • Useful Facts. Here you’ll find everything from a “portion distortion” guide – providing cues on what actual portion sizes should look like – to a grocery shopping fact sheet – to a guide on how to start and maintain a food journal.
