Last week’s blog was about MyPlate, and how the main messages of MyPlate can help us live a healthier lifestyle. To continue the conversation on this symbol, next Tuesday, January 30th, there will be a lesson at the Centennial Library in Holiday about the basics of MyPlate, and, more specifically, about how fruits and vegetables should take up half of our plate. In this lesson, participants will understand what the five groups consist of and will realize different ideas to increase their fruit and vegetable intake. Additionally, participants will do some fun activities to get them thinking about variety when it comes to fruits and vegetables, as well as doing an activity to create a meal using all of the food groups while also considering meal planning, an important concept when it comes to saving money on groceries. The Centennial Library is located at 5740 Moog Road, Holiday, FL 34690. Please join us for this free event from 11am to 12pm; all are welcome to attend!
