MyPlate Nutrition Education Series: Make Half Your Grains Whole Grains1

USDA Center for Nutrition Policy and Promotion2

After introducing MyPlate in June 2011, USDA developed a series of one-page fact sheets to help consumers apply the dietary advice in their food guide and the Dietary Guidelines for Americans. Since that time USDA has added fact sheets to the series to reflect current Dietary Guidelines and emerging approaches to healthy eating to meet the needs of a diverse population. These fact sheets are distributed by UF/IFAS Extension for Extension faculty, health professionals, and consumers.

This fact sheet is Make Half Your Grains Whole, and it can be found on the attached PDF.
