As generations grow older, their nutrition needs change. The MyPlate for Older Adults Poster features a unique icon that provides food, fluid, and physical activity guidance that correspond with USDA's 2010 Dietary Guidelines for aging populations.
This adapted MyPlate symbol features:
• Different forms of vegetables and fruits that are convenient, affordable, and readily available
• Good sources of fluids for hydration
• Lean sources of protein including those from plant-based sources and dairy
• Herbs and spices to give foods flavor instead of using salt
• Visuals of elderly adults engaging in physical activity
