Making It Simple: The Half-Your-Plate Concept
What does a serving of broccoli look like? How many baby carrots are in a cup? Even the most well-versed nutrition professionals don’t have all these measurements memorized! So let’s make it easier: fill half your plate with fruits and vegetables at each meal or eating occasion.
Making fruits and vegetables the focal point of every meal will help you meet your recommended amount each day—and you won’t have to do all the math!
The new healthy MyPlate icon developed by the USDA supports this concept … fill half your plate with colorful fruits and vegetables at every meal!
