Grade 6 and up.
When the USDA introduced MyPlate, the goal was to simplify dietary recommendations by providing at-a-glance guidelines. This program explores the key concepts of MyPlate and how it correlates to the more detailed Dietary Guidelines for Americans, including portion sizes, proportions, food group choices, and caloric balance. Explains why it’s a good idea to fill half your plate with fruits and vegetables, and even breaks down which vegetables edge out others in terms of fiber and nutrients. Discusses fat and salt intake, high-fructose corn syrup and other sugars, and whole versus refined and enriched grains - and suggests seafood and other protein choices beyond meat.
