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 at least 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!

The MyPlate Plan shows your food group targets – what and how much to eat within your calorie allowance.

Your food plan is personalized, based on your:

    • Age
    • Sex
    • Height
    • Weight
    • Physical activity level
