"Get Your Plate in Shape" During National Nutrition Month

In order to "Get Your Plate in Shape," Americans are encouraged to:
- Make half your plate fruits and vegetables.
- Switch to fat-free or low-fat milk.
- Make at least half your grains whole.
- Vary your protein choices. Try eating seafood twice a week and include beans more often.
