This study examined links between food portion sizes and key indicators of dietary quality in Irish adults. The findings of the study include that "dietary energy density was higher and micronutrient intakes lower on the days larger portions of sugar-sweetened beverages were consumed. Intakes of micronutrients (excluding folate) were much lower on the days larger portions of beer/cider were consumed." The implications of the results of the study are discussed.
