New MyPlate icon helps families plan meals easier

The Federal government’s MyPlate icon was created to help everyday consumers think about eating healthier at dinner time. This icon provides a visual representation of what your dinner plate should look like in the way of protein, vegetables, dairy, fruits and grains.

“This is a quick, simple reminder for all of us to be more mindful of the foods that we’re eating and as a mom, I can already tell how much this is going to help parents across the country,” said First Lady Michelle Obama. “When mom or dad comes home from a long day of work, we’re already asked to be a chef, a referee, a cleaning crew. So it’s tough to be a nutritionist, too. But we do have time to take a look at our kids’ plates. As long as they’re half full of fruits and vegetables, and paired with lean proteins, whole grains and low-fat dairy, we’re golden. That’s how easy it is.”
