USDA MyPlate Nutrition Information

On June 2, 2011, First Lady Michelle Obama and Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack today unveiled the federal government’s new food icon, MyPlate, to serve as a reminder to help consumers make healthier food choices. MyPlate helps us to think about building a healthy plate at meal times and emphasizes the fruit, vegetable, grains, protein and dairy food groups.
