MyPlate: Guidelines for Good Nutrition

Our Registered Dietitian, Kelly Hall, discusses MyPlate and how to use it for a nutritious diet.

March is National Nutrition Month, so it’s the perfect time to talk about how to build a nutritious diet. You’ve probably heard about the food pyramid, but it can get difficult to translate what a typical meal should look like based on the food pyramid. That’s why the USDA created MyPlate – to help people visualize what a healthy diet looks like at each meal.

Kelly discusses the nutritional value of each food group and how your body uses each food group. You can find more helpful tips, recipes and information about nutrition at choosemyplate.gov and on our blog!
