MyPlate is a reminder to find your healthy eating style and build it throughout your lifetime. Everything you eat and drink matters. The right mix can help you be healthier now and in the future. This means:
Focus on variety, amount, and nutrition.
Choose foods and beverages with less saturated fat, sodium, and added sugars.
Start with small changes to build healthier eating styles.
Support healthy eating for everyone.
Eating healthy is a journey shaped by many factors, including our stage of life, situations, preferences, access to food, culture, traditions, and the personal decisions we make over time. All your food and beverage choices count. MyPlate offers ideas and tips to help you create a healthier eating style that meets your individual needs and improves your health.

Some tips for a healthy year

Drink more water. Water is a healthy calorie-free and sugar-free beverage option.
Add 10 minutes of exercise to your day. If you don’t already exercise, aim to do 10 minutes each day. If you do currently exercise, add 10 extra minutes to your routine.
Get moving at work. Aim to stand up more often, or take a quick walk or stretch break.
Go to bed 10 minutes earlier. Imagine how well rested you’ll feel!
Commit to one healthy stress-relieving activity per day. You may quickly notice an improvement in your well-being.
Get in the habit of saving money. Rather than waiting to see what you have left after your monthly expenses, commit to saving money first.
Add an extra serving of fruit or vegetables per day. Each day, find a way to eat one more serving. You may have more opportunities than you realize!
Walk at lunch. Dedicate at least 5 minutes of your lunch break to walking. Not only will it help you be active, but it can also help you relieve stress.
Spend more time with family and friends to relieve stress, laugh more and relax—all of which can help you increase your well-being. Make it a habit to appreciate all you have and the important people in your life.
Use correct posture. Your posture can affect both your physical and mental health. Work on keeping your head up, as if you were balancing a book on your head. Avoid slouching!
Take care of your teeth. Good oral hygiene can promote good general health. Get in the habit of brushing twice and flossing once per day.
Control your portions. Limiting your portions is necessary for healthy eating and weight management.
Strive to keep moving. Even if you’re exercising, if you spend long periods of time being inactive, it can be bad for your health.
Take time away from your “screens” (cell phone, computer, TV, tablet, etc.) to benefit your physical and mental health.
Stay on top of preventive care. Visit your doctor regularly for physicals, blood pressure checks and more.
