The Portion Plate is a simple tool for learning how much you should eat as part of your diet. Not only does the plate show you how much to eat, but it also teaches the components of a healthy, balanced meal.
The plate's messages are simple: when you eat a meal, try to make half your plate fruits and vegetables, eat more whole grains, and don't oversize your portions. By making the plate as part of an art project it will help our children to remember to eat a variety of foods as part of a nutritious, balanced diet.
