USDA’S MyPlate symbolizes a simple, personalized approach to remind consumers to make healthy food choices and be active every day.
Think of MyPlate as a “calorie salary” guide that helps you get the most health and enjoyment from what you eat. Plan calories the same as major expenses — such as a car, house, or vacation.
