MyPlate is the USDA food symbol that replaced the food guide pyramid that teachers and nutritionists are using to promote healthy eating. Our USDA MyPlate Tablet of handouts or worksheets has been a hit with kids and parents. The simplicity of the nutrition graphic is perfect for kids and busy adults.
The bright and colorful USDA MyPlate Tablet of handouts (tear-off sheets) highlights how to build a healthy menu and diet with tips for selecting the best choices within each food group. Additional tips include importance of fruits and vegetables, portion control and instilling a love of healthy choices.
