"...Easy-to-follow rules of thumb are presented along with footage showing teens and parents preparing healthy meals. Viewers will also learn how to read nutrition-facts labels, recognize misleading marketing pitches, and employ various healthy practices (such as keeping sliced melon in the fridge for handy snacking). With an overarching message that "looking and feeling good" is a benefit of healthy eating, this program is likely to resonate with its intended younger audience. Recommended."
--Video Librarian, July/August 2013

"...Spelling out recommendations for nutritious and balanced eating with easy-to-follow rules of thumb, Create a Great Plate teaches viewers how to vary their dietary vegetables, choose calcium-rich foods, prefer lean protein, favor whole grains at least half of the time, and much more. Create a Great Plate is a brief but valuable instructional tool, ideal for public and school DVD libraries. Also highly recommended for educational viewing during homeroom or health classes is “What’s On MyPlate?”, an overview of the MyPlate method that features cheerful teenagers talking about the foods they love the most.”
