We’ve mentioned that Learning ZoneXpress is a MyPlate National Strategic Partner but we’ve never talked much about what that means for us. First, we are clearly proud to partner with the USDA and the network of partners on promoting healthy eating for all ages through the MyPlate strategy and infographic. Here are some of the things we signed up for when we became a National Strategic Partner:
National Strategic Partners consist of companies/organizations that are national in scope and reach and also fulfill the following requirements:
- They must have a health mandate consistent with the Dietary Guidelines for Americans and the mission of USDA Center for Nutrition Policy and Promotion (CNPP).
- They will promote nutrition content in the context of the entirety of the Dietary Guidelines for Americans.
- They will specifically disseminate CNPP’s Dietary Guidelines messages in innovative ways.
- They will participate in CNPP sessions to develop and execute a joint strategic nutrition promotion plan annually.
USDA MyPlate Fun in September
In September, the USDA MyPlate partnership will be focusing on actively promoting fruits and vegetables and making them half our MyPlate. Each partner will celebrate in a different way. We will do our best to get out the word on MyPlate events and specials via the blog, Facebook and Twitter. Our special day is coming up later in the month – but for our insiders we wanted to share a super sneak preview of our MyPlate specials web site…
Let us know what you think!
