How can I get more information about healthy eating?
At Choosemyplate.gov you will find a variety of interactive tools:
- By entering your age, height and activity level, you can get a Daily Food Plan that tells you how many cups or ounces you need each day from each of the food groups.
- MyFood-a-pedia provides easy access to information about how many calories are in different foods and allows you to compare two foods.
- The Food Tracker lets you record what you have eaten and provides information on the quality of your diet. It will also assess physical activity status.
- The Food Planner helps plan menus based on your daily food plan.
