MyPlate is the USDA food symbol that illustrates our five food groups into a familiar image for kids. It represents a place setting for a meal. These five food groups are the building blocks for a healthy diet and MyPlate helps by prompting consumers on how to build a healthier plate.
We love this organization and everything they do to inspire healthy eating habits, so to celebrate National Nutrition Month for March, we want to show you 8 of our favorite products.
