Nutrition Tools: Labels, Portions, and Plates

  1. Choose My Plate Now Tailored to You

    Many of us used the old Food Pyramid for years to help make sure we were following a balanced diet. Its replacement, Choose My Plate, was introduced in 2011.

  2. Give Your Diet a Nutritional Tune-up

    Between spending long days at work and evenings and weekends attending to personal and family concerns, few Americans have time to eat right. But you don't have to remodel your diet to improve its healthfulness.

  3. Nutrition Glossary

    Whether you’re trying to maintain a healthy weight or lose a few pounds, knowing the definitions of terms relating to diet and exercise can help you make good choices.

  4. Understanding the Latest Diet, Nutrition News

    Does a low-fat diet protect against heart disease? Will taking calcium supplements help reduce the risk for osteoporosis?

  5. Why Portion Sizes Are Important

    Most people are serving-size challenged, thanks to today's large portions: mega-muffins, heaping plates of pasta, behemoth burgers and extra-large bagels.
