Nutrition Q & A
What Should Be on a Healthy Plate?
Start by filling half your plate with colorful fruits and vegetables. They can be fresh, frozen or canned. Choose fruit with no added sugars and vegetables with little or no added salt. Add a whole grain to fill about one-quarter of your plate. Choose whole grain bread, pasta, brown rice or other 100% whole grains. In the last section, add lean meat, poultry, seafood or beans. Make fat-free or low-fat milk your beverage or fat-free or low-fat yogurt for dessert.
