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. MyPlate is the new USDA food symbol replacing the food guide pyramid.
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
