Last week, we were joined by the MyPlate team from the USDA Center of Nutrition Policy and Promotion (CNPP) for a preview of two MyPlate tools that will help Americans make healthy food choices. Big thanks to @Barbara Jirka from USDA-CNPP for helping to organize this!
New to the USDA - Shop Simple with MyPlate, allows individuals to find cost-saving opportunities in their local area and discover new ways to prepare budget-friendly foods. The panelists presented the background on the development of the tool as well as demo the key features including a SNAP locator, rewards programs, and more. Additionally, they showed exciting updates to their popular MyPlate Quiz that launched with the release of the Dietary Guidelines for Americans, 2020-2025. The quiz provides users the opportunity to learn about their eating habits and offers tips, resources, and tools to help them make simple changes.
