ChooseMyPlate.gov For Planning a Healthy Diet
Need help planning your meals and keeping a healthy balanced diet? Well, the United States Department of Agriculture has a new website that aims to do just that, ChooseMyPlate.gov, which was recently unveiled by First Lady Michelle Obama, Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack and Surgeon General Regina Benjamin.
A proper diet is important if you want to lose some pounds or maintain a healthy body weight, but it’s also important for simply living a long life. Poor diets can lead to heart disease, diabetes, and other serious health concerns.
ChooseMyPlate.gov provides information about the valuable nutrients contained in food, suggests which types of food you should have more or less of and what categories each food falls into.
With constant research being done, nutritional standards are continuously changing so ChooseMyPlate.gov can keep you up to date.
This site is a resource for anyone looking to feed themselves or their families in a healthy manner and has special instructions when it comes to those who are pregnant or breastfeeding.
It also has special advice for preschoolers and children, as well as materials to help teach them about what it means to have a healthy diet.
We all need a little help to get by and this site is dedicated to offering knowledge and a helping hand when it comes to planning out your diet. If you’re serious about eating right, then ChooseMyPlate.gov is invaluable.
