|iNutrition My Plate|
This workshop will provide information on the USDA's dietary guidelines using the new "My Plate" icon. We will be learning about the features available on their new website. My Plate is a new icon that is simpler to use than the traditional food guide pyramid. The website also allows you to personalize your food plan based on age, height, weight, and activity level. There is also a guide to help you determine which food group a particular food should go into and its calorie content.
