The Healthy Eating Plate

HEPJan2015Use this as a guideline to create healthy and balanced meals.  Put a copy on your refrigerator to help remind your family to eat well and stay active! 

The Healthy Eating Plate is focused on the types of foods that we should eat…

  • The type of carbohydrate in the diet is more important than the amount of carbohydrate in the diet, because some sources of carbohydrate—like vegetables (other than potatoes), fruits, whole grains, and beans—are healthier than others.
  • The Healthy Eating Plate also advises that we avoid sugary beverages, a major source of calories—usually with little nutritional value.
  • The Healthy Eating Plate encourages us to use healthy oils, instead of just restricted our intake of fat.
