It's MyPlate's birthday, but the presents are for YOU! The new MyPlate mini-poster has great tips to help you celebrate a healthy you!
MyPlate illustrates the five food groups that are the building blocks for a healthy diet using a familiar image – a place setting for a meal. Before you eat, think about what goes on your plate, in your cup, or in your bowl.
Find a workout buddy! Sometimes activities with friends or family are more enjoyable than doing them alone. Join a walking club or attend group fitness classes. By building a support network, you can encourage each other to be active.
