Objectives and learning goals for the MyPlate Plate:
- Half the plate is filled with fruits and vegetables.
- One quarter of the plate is filled with grains.
- One quarter of the plate is filled with protein.
- And there is one serving of dairy in the top right corner.
- All five good groups are included on one plate for portion control and a healthy eating plan.
The MyPlate Plastic Plates designed by Nutrition Education Store work great for wellness fairs, cooking demos, classrooms, or one-on-one consultations. The gold color is warm and positive and goes with everything. These plates are eye catchers!
This plate has tested portion sizes!

Do not use the plates in the microwave. Do not cut with a sharp metal knife.
Instructions are on the bottom of the plate to explain that they can be used in the dishwasher but not the microwave.
