Just a simple wish to you for a healthy 2013. To help keep you focused, we wanted to remind you of the simple lessons learned from MyPlate:
- Make half your plate fruits and vegetables
- Make at least half your grains whole
- Switch to skim or 1% milk
- Vary your protein food choices
If you can keep those rules in mind, you’ll be well on your way for a healthy year. If you need some help remembering, Learning ZoneXpress has a number of great MyPlate posters to help keep you on track. In fact we also have some fun modified products to promote 1 Great Tray - same healthy idea, adapted to help your students make the connection between a balanced meal at home and in the lunchroom.
