The new MyPlate icon is a simplified dietary plan from the U. S. Department of Agriculture and Department of Health and Human Services and covers balancing calories, increasing certain foods (fruits, vegetables, whole grains) and decreasing others (items with high sodium, solid fats, added sugar and sugary drinks). The message also covers eating the correct number of calories and increasing activity.
Here are highlights of the new MyPlate suggestions:
