Choose My Plate is a free government resource developed to help you make healthy eating choices.

Today, about half of all American adults have one or more preventable chronic diseases, many of which are related to their food choices and physical inactivity. Most Americans know the benefits of healthy eating, but lack the skills to make changes to their eating routines.

The Start Simple with MyPlate campaign will provide inspiration and ideas you can easily incorporate into your busy life to help improve your health and well-being over time. Starting simple can lead to realistic and positive lifestyle changes to achieve a longer and healthier life.
