Start Simple with MyPlate Stories

Do you have a MyPlate story, success or tip to share? Have you used MyPlate and its resources to teach others about nutrition or to make a change in your own eating habits?

Tell us how MyPlate has inspired you and your family, friends, or community to eat healthy and be active. Stories shared may be featured on the website or social media and may be edited if necessary to remove profanities, endorsements/ advertisements, external website links, names and other personal information, spelling mistakes, and typos.

My husband and I began our healthy eating lifestyle in April 2015. As of September 2015, my husband has lost about 50 lbs and I have lost 20 lbs. But even better than that, my husband's blood pressure is normal now!

I use ChooseMyPlate in our district ESL program's weekly newsletter which is shared with ESL coordinators, teachers, aides, and assistants. Feedback is great and most are using for their personal goals. Thanks, MyPlate!
