Healthy Meal Plan and 2010 Dietary Guidelines

Posted Feb 13 2011 7:55am

Have I mentioned the USDA’s 2010 dietary guidelines yet?.  I know the USDA has their fans, as well as their opponents. But I think they’re take away message can be agreeable to everyone. They have a document they’ve titled, “ Select Messages for Consumers ”, which I think is great advice:

  • Balancing Calories:
    • Enjoy your food, but eat less 150plate
    • Avoid oversized portions
  • Foods to Increase:
    • Make half your plate fruits and vegetables
    • Switch to fat free or lower fat milk
  • Foods to reduce:

Wahoo!! Did you notice (because I made the font 18pts) the part about “Make half your plate fruits and vegetables?”  We are way ahead of you USDA!  That’s exactly the message of my Kids Plate .  Check out the latest review and giveaway of the plate by registered dietitian Mora, and go order your plates today !

So, here is the meal plan for the week.
