In honor of National Nutrition Month®, MyPlate is sharing resources to help you bite into a healthy lifestyle everywhere you go! This blog highlights resources related to healthy eating at home.

Whether you are just beginning to grow your family, raising “tweens”, or keeping in touch with loved ones far away, family is the focus at home. MyPlate can help keep your family healthy with a variety of resources.

The Healthy Eating on a Budget section of ChooseMyPlate.gov offers information on meal planning, smart shopping ideas, and tips for creating healthy meals at home. When cooking at home, you can often make better choices about what and how much you eat and drink. Cooking also can be a fun activity and way for you to spend time with family and friends. To find free family-friendly recipes that will help you stay within your budget while cooking at home, check out What’s Cooking? USDA Mixing Bowl.

MyPlate for moms and moms-to-be and MyPlate Kids’ Place provide information about a healthy lifestyle for you and your growing family. You can learn about special nutritional needs and how to meet those needs by making healthy choices in each food group.

To stay up-to-date with nutrition, “Like” the MyPlate Facebook page and share the latest healthy eating tips with your family and friends while staying in touch with them online!

Having your children help in the kitchen is a good way to get your child to try new foods. Children are much less likely to reject foods that they helped make.
