MyPlate Message Toolkit for Professionals

The 2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommends that nutrition and health professionals help people find a healthy eating pattern that works for them and includes a variety of food and beverages within an appropriate calorie level. For maximum impact, consumers need to hear the MyPlate messages from multiple sources in a variety of settings.

The MyPlate Message Toolkit for Professionals was created to enlist health professionals and partners in amplifying the key consumer messages from the Dietary Guidelines. This online toolkit includes graphics, sample social media, videos, and links to more information for each of the key messages.
