During Part 1 of the My Plate activity you focused on your diet and were required to complete a daily food plan for three days and analyze your diet based on the current American Dietary Guidelines, 2020-2025. These Guidelines are updated every five years and provide the basis for nutrition policies. These Guidelines should also guide our nutrition education practices. Now that you have a more realistic view of your own nutritional habits from Part 1, you can hopefully find some suggestions to improve your diet and make some positive changes. Modeling good nutritional habits will help in promoting the accepted dietary standards.
