What’s on your plate? Are you making every bite count? Find personalized resources, explore the MyPlate food groups, and discover new recipes. 

The USDA MyPlate website can be used by adults, children, families and seniors and can help each age group make healthier and easier food and activity choices. Teachers and health-care providers also can use these educational tools in the classroom or as part of the treatment care plan.

Our Nutrition Education programs use these messages and tools to help you take small, steps to a healthier lifestyle. Small changes, repeated over time, help each of us to control weight, reduce our risk factors for chronic disease including obesity, diabetes, hypertension and certain cancers and help us to feel better and do better in everyday activities.

For simple, easy tips to start your small changes to a healthier you, visit MyPlate.
