June 2nd is MyPlate's birthday!
The USDA's popular healthy eating guide, MyPlate, debuted on June 2, 2011. MyPlate is now 8 years old!
We've celebrated this milestone with free goodies, new products, and lots of printable MyPlate materials.
This year, I want to announce the debut of our MyPlate CPE Course! Designed for anyone who educates others about health and nutrition, this course offers a comprehensive look at MyPlate: its history, its key lessons, its health impact, and much more! This course features several engaging presentations, a quiz, a printable certificate of completion, and lots of links that will help you find even more information about MyPlate. Check it out today!
As a bonus for this celebration, I'd also like to share a free printable MyPlate coloring page. Perfect for kids or adults, this is just one more tool to add to your educational bag of tricks.
And don't miss the most popular MyPlate resources in our store! How will these make your life easier?
Here are "healthy birthday bites" for you, too!
