What's on your Plate?

This is the icon for MyPlate which replaced MyPyramid in June 2011. The new MyPlate icon is composed of a plate divided into 4 sections: fruits, vegetables, grains, and protein. A dairy section is off the plate to the side. The MyPlate graphic is positioned on a placemat with the website written underneath. The 5 sections of MyPlate are clickable and go to food group subpages.
We have explored where our food is grown.
We have bought directly from the farmers at the Farmer's Market.

The next question?

1. Memorize the plate picture.
2. Half vegetables and fruit.

Ask your parents, teachers, google it...
Play food detective...
