Encourage healthy food choices with an emphasis on being physically active "your way" with the Active MyPlate Poster. MyPlate is the "new generation" food icon from the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) that replaced the food guide pyramid to prompt people of all ages to think differently about their food choices, help individuals meet their nutrient and calorie needs, and make positive food choices. This bright and colorful poster highlights how to build a healthy plate with tips for selecting the best choices from each food group, while emphasizing the importance of daily physical activity. Additional tips include how to eat the right amount of calories for you and foods to cut back on.
