What foods, flavors, and recipes is your state/territory known for, and how do they fit into your healthy eating style?
MyPlate, MyState is the newest component of MyPlate, MyWins and leverages the prime growing and farmers market seasons. MyPlate, MyState asks the questions: What foods, flavors, and recipes is your state/territory known for, and how do they fit into your healthy eating style?
Foods and flavors from every state and territory in this nation can help us all create lasting healthy eating styles we can enjoy. Healthy eating styles are not rigid plans, but rather ones that can be adapted to include foods that you enjoy that meet your personal and cultural preferences and fit within your budget. The key is finding styles that fit your everyday life, and to make small changes that can add up to big success over time. MyPlate’s building blocks for healthy eating are a great place to start.
More detailed information and a timeline is available about MyPlate, MyState and includes a call for individuals and organizations to create and submit state-specific MyPlates featuring foods and flavors that their state is known for. These customized MyPlate, MyState images may appear on the ChooseMyPlate.gov website.
