Build a Healthy Plate Poster

Karen Sherbondy
Human Environmental Sciences Extension Associate

This poster highlights key messages of the Dietary Guidelines, including eating more fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lower-fat dairy products; eating less sugar, fat, salt/sodium; varying protein choices; and balancing calories for weight maintenance. Using food labels to make better food choices and being physically active are also addressed.
