Healthy Eating Plate; Eating a balanced diet.

  1. Make most of your meal vegetables and fruits — ½ of your plate.
  • The type of carbohydrate in the diet is more important than the amount of carbohydrate in the diet, because some sources of carbohydrate — like vegetables (other than potatoes), fruits, whole grains, and beans — are healthier than others.
  • The Healthy Eating Plate also advises consumers to avoid sugary beverages, a major source of calories usually with little nutritional value.
  • The Healthy Eating Plate encourages consumers to use healthy oils, and it does not set a maximum on the percentage of calories people should get each day from healthy sources of fat. In this way, the Healthy Eating Plate recommends the opposite of the low-fat message promoted for decades by the USDA.
