  • Nutrient Dense Foods
    Achieving a healthy eating pattern means shifting typical food choices to more nutrient-dense options—that is, foods with important nutrients that aren’t packed with extra calories or sodium.
  • MyPlate Tip
    Fill your cart with budget-friendly and healthy options from each food group.
  • How Many Calories Do You Burn?
    Every minute of vigorous activity counts as two minutes of moderate activity. For example, 30 minutes of vigorous activity is equivalent to 60 MIE minutes. Light intensity activity and activity less than 10 minutes in duration do not count toward MIE minutes. Although, any activity is always better than none!
  • Healthy Shopping Tips
    You don’t have to drastically change the way you shop to eat healthy.
