Nutrition educators help families build healthy meals based on the Dietary Guidelines and MyPlate.
MyPlate is an easy-to-remember icon—a colorful dinner plate divided into sections for fruits, vegetables, grains and proteins next to a circle representing a cup labeled dairy. The USDA's website www.ChooseMyPlate.gov offers tools and resources to help consumers put the Dietary Guidelines for Americans into action by building healthy eating patterns.
ChooseMyPlate.gov is an excellent resource for building healthy meals.
The 10 Tips Nutrition Education Series provides tips for eating better on a budget, kid-friendly fruits and veggies, making healthier food and beverage choices and much more! The site also features Supertracker, an online tool to help you plan and track your meals and physical activity.
