   In 2011, the US Department of Agriculture retired the use of the food pyramid.  Instead they implemented MyPlate.  MyPlate helps children and adults understand how to build a well balanced meal by representing the food groups in a format they are use to seeing:  on a plate.  You can get out many wonderful resources by visiting their site at www.choosemyplate.gov

   

   We would like to provide some additional websites for nutritional information.  We researched and found some sites that will help educate parents, teachers, and students about living and eating healthy.
