What's On MyPlate Day is March 8th!

Posted on 3/2/2012 by Yolanda Miller


The goal of “What’s on MyPlate?” Day is to create nationwide attention by using the outreach strength of social networks such as blogs, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Facebook, to promote MyPlate and its related messages and resources like the new SuperTracker and the ChooseMyPlate.gov website. These resources empower consumers with the how-tos to build healthier plates. A key goal is to empower Partners and their constituents to take action on the message this quarter of the year, “Enjoy your food, but eat less,” tell their stories, and to share photographs of personal successes. Partners, along with the general public, can use the hash-tag #MyPlateYourPlate to aid the recognition of this social media event.
