It is hard because you just want to spare their feelings and some people may make fun BUT I think it is more important to raise a person who can be confident in themselves despite social norms than to raise them to conform to them. Of course their are times when conforming to social norms is appropriate and that also should be taught but being yourself and being confidant is very important (at least to me)
The only time you should look in your neighbor's bowl is to make sure that they have enough. You don't look in your neighbor's bowl to see if you have as much as them.
