Nutrition Resources for Parents
The worries and woes of being a parent never end, but at least there is a reliable source for information on how to feed them as they grow. ChooseMyPlate, the replacement to the former Food Pyramid, provides an easy visual for building a healthy plate with all the food groups. The website, www.choosemyplate.gov, is a great place to find the answers to your family’s nutrition questions with a meal plan calculator to tell you how many servings of each food group you and your child needs, grocery lists, tip sheets, recipes, kids games, and even a food and activity tracker. Check it out and start building your own MyPlate with your family today.
