Fruit on My Plate
By Colleen Messina
  

1     Eating healthy can be fun! The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) has a new way to help people make good choices about what they eat. It is a diagram called MyPlate that is a visual representation of healthy food portions. This circular plate is divided into four sections. One section, colored red, is for fruit. The USDA recommends that half of your plate be filled with fruits and vegetables.
 
2     Any fruit counts as part of the fruit group. While it is healthier to eat whole fruit, even 100% fruit juice can count. There are so many kinds of fruit to pick from. Berries, like strawberries, raspberries, or blueberries, are delicious. Apples, bananas, oranges, and apricots are portable snacks. Melons can be cold and refreshing in the summer. What kind of fruit do you like best?
