There is nothing that leaves the belly wanting more than tiny food. Sometimes used as a portion control mechanism, it can be a useful and effective way to trick the mind.

In some cases, this method can have somewhat of a negative effect. It can lead people to believe that because it is so small that it is harmless. This can lead to eating foods we shouldn't and popping in more than we should.

At the end of the day, I suppose tiny food is better than trying to consume oversized dishes that North Americans are typically known for. Take European coffee for example; it's miniscule and North Americans are said to have a difficult time settling for such a small quantity.
