Healthy eating is important. At the same time, we know that making changes to what you eat and drink can be a challenge and take time. To help individuals and families improve their health, the U.S. Departments of Agriculture and Health and Human Services provide a variety of free resources on healthy eating based on the current Dietary Guidelines for Americans.
There is more than one way to eat healthy and everyone has their own eating style. MyPlate is a reminder to build a healthy eating style by choosing foods from all five food groups – fruits, vegetables, dairy, grains and protein foods. ChooseMyPlate.gov offers tip sheets, videos, recipes, and other tools to help you find your healthy eating style and maintain it for a lifetime.
