March 8th is a big day in the world of MyPlate. As we announced earlier this week..
Learning ZoneXpress announced today that they are teaming up with the nearly 6,000 USDA partners to make March 8, 2012 “What’s on MyPlate?” Day, to heighten public awareness of the importance of choosing foods for a healthy meal. Learning ZoneXpress is committed to promoting a diet that reflects the latest recommendations in the 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans and highlights the message behind the new MyPlate food icon.
However, we got to thinking – that’s just not enough, so we’re planning a fun contest to help engage kids, families, teachers – everyone to put MyPlate into practice. On March 8th, we will be inviting LZX friends, fans, and colleagues to send us a picture of their plate. For a limited time – we will provide an entry form for participants to upload photos of their very own "MyPlate." We will post our favorites on our blog and Facebook page. All entrants will receive a MyPlate Sampler Pack.
Watch our Facebook page for updates. We'll be posting a link to our entry form tomorrow morning!
The MyPlate Sampler Pack is a fun grab bag of our MyPlate products. Your grab bag could contain any combination of the following:
