My Healthy Plate is a friendly, easy-to-understand visual guide for creating balanced and healthy meals. It shows you what to eat in the right amounts for each meal, so that you can plan your portions accordingly.It's relatively easy to use; all you need is a plate that's 9 inches across. Then follow these simple guidelines.

   • Fill half of the plate with non starchy vegetables and fruits.

   • Fill 1/4 of the plate with protein foods like poultry, eggs, lean meats, beans, lentils etc.

   • Fill 1/4 of the plate with starchy foods or whole grains like brown rice, wheat, oats.
