Fresh Baby has recently joined the USDA in a national strategic partnership that supports their mission of reducing childhood obesity by allowing us the opportunity to communicate the message of fresh and healthy eating to many more family nationwide.
As part of this new opportunity, Fresh Baby is acting together with the USDA Center for Nutrition Policy and Promotion (CNPP) to help educate families on how they can build a healthier plate. Fresh Baby contacted me to ask – How Can You Build A Healthier Plate? We were definitely up to the challenge! I love to plan healthy and delicious meals for our family, and enjoyed using the grocery list. Since we consume a lot of fruits and vegetables with our meals and in our morning fruit/veggie smoothie, those sections of the list filled in quickly.
You can learn more about building a healthier plate at www.choosemyplate.gov and www.freshbaby.com.
Even though I try to feed Lily healthy foods, it was nice to see the actual split of what I was giving her. She has a tendency to prefer fresh vegetables over even kid-favorites like Mac & Cheese (I know, lucky me!!), so the plate reminded me to add some grains to her meal in the plate pictured below.
One of my US readers will win a wonderful array of Fresh Baby healthy plate goodies.
