When my daughter reached 16 she asked me to serve her half of what I normally serve her. I said okay but still gave her a fairly large serving. She then got up from the table and put HALF of what I had given her onto a smaller plate then put it in the refrigerator.
I argued that it wasn't enough for her to eat.
She informed me that none of her girlfriends mothers over load the plate the way I did and that anyone eating that much food would become overweight.
I ranted and raved and cried but she just ignored me.
The next day was a similar affair. She put aside half of what I served her for anyone else to use for lunch the next day.
It took about 4 days but I finally learned my lesson and served a decent amount.
Some of us mothers that have been brought up with large servings and been taught to eat everything on our plate take a little longer to change our ways.
At breakfast you could have something like 1 cup of plain skim yogurt and 1 chopped up peice of fruit and maybe a porridge sachet.
