A Healthy Plate
By Kathleen W. Redman
  

1     Imagine spending a long afternoon at the beach or a swimming pool. You jump in the water and swim. You run around with friends. You play in the sun and get hot. You jump in the water and swim some more. All that playing and swimming is great exercise. It takes a lot of energy, though. You will get very hungry and thirsty.
 
2     Eating and drinking give your body energy. They do this by providing calories and nutrients. Your body needs both to work well. So what do you like to eat? Is it okay to eat anything you want?
 
3     Some food is good for you. Some food is not good for you. You should eat more of some foods. You should eat less of some foods. So how do you know what to eat?
 
4     In order to give your body all it needs, you should eat many different kinds of foods. The United States Department of Agriculture has a new plan called My Plate. It is a way to help you make good food choices.
