Our goal is to teach girls the importance of nutrition and healthy eating, providing
them with a roadmap to living their healthiest lives.
MyPlate is a reminder to find your healthy eating style and build it throughout your lifetime. Everything you eat and drink matters. The right mix can help you be healthier now and in the future. This means:
Focus on variety, amount, and nutrition.
Choose foods and beverages with less saturated fat, sodium, and added sugars.
Start with small changes to build healthier eating styles.
Support healthy eating for everyone.
There are fun, healthy and inexpensive alternative to young girls favorite foods.
