MyPlate is a great tool to help make smart, balanced food choices.


Remember these important messages that MyPlate teaches us -

Balancing Calories

    - Enjoy your food, but eat less.

    - Avoid oversized portions.

Foods to Increase

    - Make half your plate fruits and vegetables.

    - Make at least half your grains whole grains.

    - Switch to fat-free or low-fat (1%) milk.

Foods to Reduce

    - Compare sodium in foods like soup, bread and frozen meals - choose the food with the lower number.

    - Drink water instead of sugary drinks.
