Choosing My Plate

The food guide pyramid has been replaced with a new graphic…a dinner plate.  The new guide is based on the updated 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans.  Learn more about “My Plate” by exploring the website.

MyPlate Focuses on:

-Making your plate half fruits and vegetables

-Making atleast half your grains whole-grains

-Switching to fat-free or low-fat (1%) milk

-Enjoying your food, but in smaller portions

It’s about redesigning your plate!
