    3. 3. . PLAY! OR Pass… Share your partner’s response to the bellwork (Be sure to introduce yourself and your partner) 5
    4. 4. Use the “Choose My Plate”Notetaker to record information given in this presentation.
    5. 5. What is MyPlate? MyPlate is the new USDA guidance system to improve the nutrition and wellbeing of Americans. MyPlate replaced MyPyramid as the major nutrition icon used by the USDA to portray the components of healthy diet to consumers. “MyPlate illustrates the five food groups that are the building blocks for a healthy diet using a familiar image- a place setting for a meal. Before you eat, think about what goes on your plate or in your cup or bowl.” April 2005-June 2011 June 2011-Present
    6. 6. How is it Different? Early Food Guides Basic 4 Food Guide Patterns for Daily Food Choices
    7. 7. Earlier Models:
    8. 8. Balance of Food GroupsTo build a healthy plate:3)Fill ½ of your plate with fruits and vegetables.4)Fill ¼ of your plate with grains (preferably whole).5)Fill ¼ of your plate with a lean protein source.6)Having a serving of dairy on the side.
    9. 9. Fruits Any fruit, fresh, frozen, or canned in 100% juice falls under this category. It may be whole, cut-up or pureed. 1 serving of fruit is equivalent to: ◦ 1 cup fresh or frozen fruit (size of fist) ◦ 1 medium piece of fruit ◦ 1 cup 100% fruit juice ◦ ½ cup dried fruit
    10. 10. Vegetables Any vegetable, fresh, frozen, or canned (with no salt added) or rinsed in a strainer 1 serving is equivalent to: ◦ 2 cups leafy greens ◦ 1 cup raw or steamed vegetables ◦ 1 cup of vegetable juice
    11. 11. Paint Your Plate: Health Benefits Blue/Purple ◦ Benefits: This dark color presents against heart disease by preventing clot formation, and maintains healthy blood pressure ◦ Examples: Blueberries, blackberries, prunes, eggplant, blue potatoes, purple tomatoes, plums, purple onions
    12. 12. Paint Your Plate  Red ◦ Benefits: These foods contain powerful antioxidants that ward off some forms of cancer, and protect against heart attacks ◦ Examples: Tomatoes and tomato products, watermelon, red peppers, guava, cranberries, strawberries ◦ Hint: Heating up tomatoes helps your body absorb even more of their nutrients
    13. 13. Paint Your Plate Green o Benefits • Dark green foods contain powerful antioxidants and help your body remove cancer-causing toxins. • They are also heart healthy and aid in regulating blood pressure o Examples: Broccoli, kale, spinach, collard greens, brussels sprouts, cabbage, green beans, kiwi
    14. 14. Paint Your Plate Orange ◦ Benefits: These foods are important for skin and bone health, and help maintain normal blood sugar ◦ Examples: Oranges, tangerines, carrots, cantaloupe, pumpkins, sweet potatoes, apricots, orange peppers
    15. 15. Paint Your Plate Yellow ◦ Benefits: These foods are essential to protect your vision and help keep your immune system healthy ◦ Examples: Yellow squash, corn, avocados, endive, banana, lemons
    16. 16. ?Thumbs up / Thumbs down 4 Understanding
    17. 17. Grains Make at least ½ of your daily grain servings whole grains Increase whole grain intake by replacing refined grains with whole grains 1 oz. of grains is equivalent to: ◦ 1 slice of bread ◦ 1 cup of ready-to-eat cereal ◦ ½ cup of cooked rice, cooked pasta, or cooked cereal
    18. 18. Diagram of a Grain
    19. 19. Refined Grains Grains that have been milled to remove the bran and germ from the grain Milling gives grains a finer texture and improves their shelf life The milling process also removes the most nutritious parts of the grain ◦ Dietary fiber, iron, and many B vitamins
    20. 20. Enriched Grains Grain products with B vitamins (thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, folic acid) and iron added Refined grains are typically “enriched” to improve their nutritional profile
    21. 21. Whole Grains Include the entire grain seed, usually called the kernel The kernel consists of 3 main components—the bran, germ, and endosperm Whole grains are consumed either as a single food (ex: wild rice or popcorn) or an ingredient in foods (ex: cereals, breads, crackers)
    22. 22. Identifying a Whole Grain To ensure the product you are purchasing is truly a whole grain, look at the ingredient list The first ingredient should include the word whole before the grain type Examples: ◦ Whole wheat or 100% whole wheat ◦ Whole grain barley ◦ Whole rye Other types of whole grains: Buckwheat, bulgur, millet, oatmeal, quinoa, rolled oats, brown or wild rice
    23. 23. Health Benefits of Whole Grains Dietary fiber ◦ May help reduce blood cholesterol levels ◦ May lower risk of heart disease, obesity, and type 2 diabetes ◦ Helps maintain proper bowel function, reducing constipation and the likelihood of developing diverticulosis ◦ Provides a feeling of fullness
    24. 24. Nutrients in Whole Grains B vitamins (thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, folate) ◦ Help the body release energy from protein, fat, and carbohydrates ◦ Essential for a healthy nervous system Iron ◦ Used to carry oxygen in the blood
    25. 25. Nutrients in Whole Grains Magnesium ◦ Used in building bones and releasing energy from muscles Selenium ◦ Protects cells from oxidation ◦ Helps maintain a healthy immune system
    26. 26. Protein Foods Make ¼ of your plate lean protein 1 ounce of protein is equivalent to: ◦ 1 ounce of meat, poultry or fish ◦ ¼ cup cooked beans ◦ 1 egg or 2 egg whites ◦ 1 tablespoon of peanut butter ◦ ½ ounce of nuts or seeds (Ex: 12 almonds, 24 pistachios, 7 walnut halves)
    27. 27. Lean Protein Sources  Meat: Choose lean cuts ◦ Eye of round roast or steak ◦ Sirloin tip side steak ◦ Top round roast and steak ◦ Bottom round roast and steak ◦ Top sirloin steak ◦ Lean or Extra lean ground beef
    28. 28. Lean Protein Sources Poultry ◦ Choose skinless, boneless breasts ◦ Trim all visible fat Turkey ◦ Choose light meat over dark meat ◦ Choose lean or extra lean ground turkey
    29. 29. Lean Protein Sources Eggs ◦ Use egg whites whenever possible ◦ 2 egg yolks per week are safe for individuals with high cholesterol ◦ Note: New studies recommend eating the egg yolk as many valuable nutrients are missed when eating egg whites only Fish ◦ Choose alternative varieties of shellfish to lower cholesterol intake (Ex: scallops, crab, lobster instead of shrimp)
    30. 30. Health Benefits of Protein Proteins function as building blocks for bones, muscles, cartilage, skin, blood, enzymes, hormones, and vitamins
    31. 31. Nutrients in Protein B vitamins (thiamin, riboflavin, folate, B6, B12) Zinc ◦ A mineral necessary for biochemical reactions and proper immune function EPA and DHA ◦ Two types of omega-3 fatty acids found in varying amounts in seafood that have been shown to play a positive role in heart health
    32. 32. Saturated Fats Fats that have no double bonds and tend to remain solid at room temperature Higher intakes have been shown to be associated with higher levels of total and LDL cholesterol (positive risk factors for heart disease) Examples: Full-fat meats and dairy products, hydrogenated shortening, coconut, or palm oils
    33. 33. Cholesterol Used in the body for physiological and structural functions The body makes cholesterol and humans do not need to consume this in their diet Higher intakes have been shown to raise blood levels of LDL cholesterol (a positive risk factor for heart disease) Varying levels can be found in different animal products: meat, seafood, poultry, eggs, dairy products
    34. 34. Recommendations Consume <10% of total calories from saturated fat ◦ For a 2,000 calorie diet, this would equal 22 grams Consume <300 mg/day of cholesterol ◦ 1 egg yolk = 185 mg cholesterol ◦ 3 oz. shrimp (about 4 large) = 166 mg cholesterol
    35. 35. Oils Consume your recommended serving of oils each day (varies) 1 teaspoon of oil is equivalent to: ◦ 1 tsp. oil (Best choices: olive, canola, soybean, flaxseed) ◦ 1 tsp. butter or margarine ◦ 1 tsp. mayonnaise ◦ ½ Tbsp. peanut butter ◦ 1 T. nuts or seeds ◦ 1 T. regular salad dressing or 2 T. light dressing ◦ 1/8 avocado ◦ 8 olives
    36. 36. Oils and Cooking Methods Choosing lean cooking methods will help to reduce fat content of meals: ◦ Poaching ◦ Broiling ◦ Baking ◦ Sautéeing ◦ Grilling ◦ Steaming
    37. 37. Health Benefits of Oils  MUFAs ◦ May lower your total cholesterol and low-density lipoprotein cholesterol levels ◦ May also help normalize blood clotting ◦ May also benefit insulin levels and blood sugar control  PUFAs ◦ Omega 3 fatty acids have been shown to play a positive role in heart health
    38. 38. Nutrients in Oils Oils are the major source of monounsaturated fats (MUFAs) and polyunsaturated fats (PUFAs) in the diet PUFAs contain some fatty acids that are necessary for health—called "essential fatty acids” ◦ Omega-6 PUFAs (liquid vegetable oils) ◦ Omega-3 PUFAs (soybean oil, canola oil, walnuts, flaxseed, fish) Vitamin E ◦ A powerful antioxidant that has may reduce the risk of heart disease and cancer
    39. 39. Dairy Include 1 cup of nonfat or low-fat dairy at each meal 1 cup of dairy is equivalent to: ◦ 1 cup of milk, soymilk (soy beverage), or almond milk ◦ 1 cup yogurt ◦ 1 ½ ounces of natural cheese ◦ 2 ounces of processed cheese
    40. 40. Health Benefits of Dairy Intake of dairy products is linked to improved bone health, and may reduce the risk of osteoporosis Intake of dairy products is also associated with a reduced risk of cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes, and with lower blood pressure in adults Note: It is possible to obtain the same nutrient benefits offered by dairy from alternate food sources and have a healthy diet without dairy
    41. 41. Nutrients in Dairy Calcium ◦ Used for building bones and teeth and in maintaining bone mass ◦ Adequate calcium intake is indicated for the following age groups:  Children: 9 years+  Adolescent girls  Adult women  Adults: 51 years+ ◦ Diets that include 3 cups of dairy a day can improve bone mass
    42. 42. Nutrients inDairy Potassium ◦ Helps to maintain healthy blood pressure ◦ Reduces risk of developing kidney stones and experiencing bone loss Vitamin D ◦ Works to maintain proper levels of calcium and phosphorous, thereby helping to build and maintain bones ◦ Can help reduce the risk of bone fractures
    43. 43. MyPlate Key Messages Balancing Calories o Enjoy your food, but eat less. o Avoid oversized portions.  Foods to Increase o Make half your plate fruits and vegetables. o Make at least half of your daily grains whole grains. o Switch to fat-free or low-fat (1%) milk. Foods to Reduce o Compare sodium in foods like soup, bread, and frozen meals and choose the foods with lower numbers. o Drink water instead of sugary drinks.
    44. 44. SoFAS SoF= Solid Fats ◦ Includes saturated fat and trans fatty acids AS= Added Sugars ◦ Includes sugars that are added to foods during processing, preparation, or at the table The USDA food patterns include a SoFAS allowance for each calorie level, formerly known as “discretionary calories”
    45. 45. Trans Fatty Acids Trans Fatty Acids ◦ Created through the process of hydrogenation, in which food manufacturers use to make products containing unsaturated fatty acids solid at room temperature ◦ Hydrogenation allows fats to become more resistant to becoming spoiled or rancid ◦ Consuming too many of these fats has been shown to raise LDL cholesterol and increase risk for heart disease
    46. 46. Trans Fatty Acids Examples of Foods: ◦ Baked goods (cookies, cakes, frosting, crackers, donuts, pastries, and croissants) ◦ Packaged snack foods (chips, crackers, snack mixes) How to identify: ◦ Look at the ingredient label for the terms “hydrogenated oil” or “partially hydrogenated oil” ◦ Even if the nutrition facts label reads “0 gm trans fat” the food can still contain trace amounts
    47. 47. Other Food Components to Decrease Sodium ◦ Sodium is an essential nutrient and is needed by the body in relatively small quantities ◦ The higher an individual’s intake of sodium, the higher their blood pressure ◦ The estimated average intake of sodium for all Americans ages 2 years and older is approximately 3,400 mg/day ◦ What is the daily requirement for sodium?
    48. 48. Added Sugars Sugars are added to foods to improve sweetness and palatability, serve as a preservative, and provide functional attributes (ex: browning capacity) Many foods that contain added sugars often supply calories, but few or no essential nutrients and no dietary fiber (empty calories) Both naturally occuring sugars and added sugars inrease the risk of dental caries
    49. 49. Added Sugars Examples: ◦ Any term that has an “-ose” on the end (dextrose, fructose, sucrose, maltose, lactose) ◦ Any term that has “syrup” on the end (corn syrup, high-fructose corn syrup, malt syrup, pancake syrup) ◦ Any type of sugar (brown sugar, invert sugar, raw sugar, confectioner’s sugar) ◦ Dextrin, honey, nectar, molasses
    50. 50. Reducing Intake of Added Sugars Drink few or no regular sodas, sport drinks, energy drinks, and fruit drinks ◦ Instead, choose water, seltzer, unsweetened tea or coffee Eat less cookies, cake, ice cream, candy, and other desserts ◦ Select fruit for dessert Read the Nutrition Facts label and ingredient label to choose products with less sugar
    51. 51. Sodium The daily requirement for the average American is 2,300 mg/day (1 tsp) For certain groups the requirement is 1,500 mg/day ◦ Individuals with hypertension, diabetes, or chronic kidney disease ◦ Adults ages 51 years and older
    52. 52. Reducing Sodium Intake Read the Nutrition Facts label for information on the sodium content of foods Consume more fresh foods and less processed foods Eat more home-prepared foods where you have more control over preparation methods Use spices, no salt seasonings, juice, or vinegar as flavoring instead of salt
    53. 53. Reducing Sodium Intake Use condiments less often and do not add salt to food at meals When eating at restaurants, ask that salt not be added to your food or order lower sodium options if available Increase the amount of potassium in your diet (works to counteract sodium in the body)
    54. 54. Other Food Components to Decrease Alcohol ◦ In the US, approximately 50% of adults are current regular drinkers and 14% are current infrequent drinkers ◦ Alcohol may have beneficial effects when consumed in moderation ◦ However, alcohol intake has also been linked to increased risk of breast cancer, violence, drowning, and injuries form falls and auto accidents
    55. 55. Alcohol If alcohol is consumed, it should be done so in moderation and only by those of legal age (Over the age of 21) Moderate consumption ◦ 1 drink per day for women ◦ 2 drinks per day for men 1 drink is equivalent to: ◦ 12 fl. oz. beer ◦ 5 fl. oz. of wine ◦ 1.5 fl. oz. of hard liquor
    56. 56. Physical Activity Strong evidence supports that regular participation in physical activity helps people maintain a healthy weight and prevent excess weight gain When combined with reduced calorie intake, physical activity may aid in weight loss and maintenance of weight loss
    57. 57. Physical Activity For substantial health benefits, adults should do at least: ◦ 150 minutes (2.5 hours) a week of moderate- intensity aerobic physical activity  Ex: Brisk walking OR ◦ 75 minutes (1 hour and 15 minutes) a week of vigorous-intensity aerobic physical activity  Ex: Running
    58. 58. Physical Activity For additional and more extensive health benefits, adults should increase their aerobic physical activity to: ◦ 300 minutes (5 hours) a week of moderate- intensity activity OR ◦ 150 minutes (1.5 hours) a week of vigorous- intensity activity
