MyPlate

myplateTo empower parents and caregivers, we commit to prominently display MyPlate information in all municipally- or county-owned or operated venues where food is served.

MyPlate illustrates the five food groups that are the building blocks for a healthy diet using a familiar image—a place setting for a meal. Before you eat, think about what goes on your plate or in your cup or bowl. Food groups are:

  • Fruits
  • Vegetables
  • Grains
  • Protein Foods
  • Dairy

Let’s Move Boise is working with municipally-operated venues and community centers at Whitney, Grace Jordan and Morley Nelson elementary school to educate kids about the importance of the five food groups.
