Make Small Changes

Practical changes to the meals you commonly eat, whether in the employee cafeteria or at your favorite eatery, can improve your diet and add up to big wins over time. The MyPlate, MyWins animated video series demonstrates small changes in meals that will decrease consumption of added sugars, saturated fat, and sodium in alignment with the Dietary Guidelines for Americans. Making choices that incorporate these changes in your everyday life can help you achieve a healthy eating style now and into the future.
