By: Taste of Home Test Kitchen 
"This lip-smacking salute to summertime is a creative cross between a classic banana split and a fruit salad. A scoop of watermelon, fresh berries and a sweet creamy topping produce a red, white and blue finale to any meal. And best of all, you won't have to worry about you dessert melting!"

Choose My Plate



The USDA has recently replaced the 19 year old food pyramid with a new program entitled  "My Plate," which is divided into four colorful sections and a separate side section for dairy.  The new icon is simple easy to understand for adults and children alike. 


So what's the "Healthy Plate" look like?


        � the plate focuses on healthy fruits and  


        Protein is the smallest part of the plate

        Grains are a bit larger portion than protein, but remember that 'whole

         grains' are the healthier option.

        Two to three daily servings make up the side plate.


How do I make a 'Healthy Plate' ?

        Read food labels (Nutrition Facts) and the ingredients to make healthy


        Check the number of calories PER SERVING you will eat.  When you 

         double the serving, you double the calories and all of the other

         macro/micro nutrients on the label.

        Choose foods with lower calories that contain minimal if any

         saturated/TRANS fats, and low amounts of sodium. 

        Limit foods that have ADDED sugars, like sucrose, high fructose corn

         syrup, and fructose.
