USDA MyPlate model includes 1/2 fruits and vegetables, 1/4 lean protein, and 1/4 whole grains. It’s an icon that makes it easy for parents and kids to understand good nutrition – but it doesn’t help as much when some of the food on MyPlate is obscured – such as the case with a burrito.
The Portion Distortion Burrito Poster helps reveal the insides of the delicacy and allows students to assess the nutrition of the ingredients. With simple visual images, this poster illustrates the difference between what you're served and what's considered a serving of a popular Mexican meal: chicken burrito with chips and salsa.
Poster includes plenty of practical take-away information including easy ways to measure portion sizes, tips to make Mexican meals healthier, common oversized portions, and more.
