MyPlate [electronic resource]: Understanding the USDA Dietary Guidelines for Americans

Meridian Education Corporation
Format
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
Summary
When the USDA replaced MyPyramid with MyPlate, the goal was to simplify dietary recommendations by providing at-a-glance guidelines without having to weigh and measure at every meal. This program explores the key concepts of MyPlate and how it correlates to the more detailed Dietary Guidelines for Americans, including portion sizes, proportions, food group choices, and caloric balance. The video explains why it's a good idea to fill half your plate with produce, and even breaks down which vegetables edge out others in terms of fiber and nutrients. Stressing the impact of poor eating habits on health, it discusses fat and salt intake, high-fructose corn syrup and other sugars, and whole versus refined and enriched grains - and suggests seafood and other protein choices beyond just meat. A critical update to any health curriculum.
