My Plate

MyPlate is the “new generation” food image to prompt consumers to think differently
about their food choices. 

The 2010 Dietary Guidelines suggests the following changes in three areas:

     Balancing calories
           Enjoy your food but eat less especially avoid over-sized portions.

     Foods to increase
            Make half your plate fruits and vegetables and at least half your grains
 whole grains. A switch to fat free or 1% low-fat milk will help reduce fat
 intake.

     Foods to reduce
           When consuming foods such as soups, breads, and frozen meals choose ones
that are lower in sodium.  Replace sugary drinks with water.
