The Healthy Eating Plate essentially takes the visual part of MyPlate — which “doesn’t offer much in the way of useful information,” Harvard Heart Letter editor P.J. Skerrett wrote in a blog post announcing Harvard’s plate — and adds short descriptions that elaborate on how much of what should be eaten.
The vegetables section says: “The more veggies — and the greater the variety — the better. Potatoes and french fries don’t count.”
The fruits section says: “Eat plenty of fruits of all colors.”
Beyond the blog post announcing the plate, the Harvard Health Publications website has a page dedicated to the Healthy Eating Plate.
