To My Plate and Beyond
March 11, 2018 - May 20, 2018
Purdue University Agriculture Exhibit Design Center
Explore the world of healthy eating with Max & Munch! This exhibit provides exciting opportunities to experience hands-on benefits of healthy eating habits! How many vegetables should you eat? Do you eat that many fruits? What are grains? Can chocolate milk be a dairy serving? And fish, poultry and meat are protein – right?
Join Max and Munch as they find the answers to these questions and more through their exploration of the world of MyPlate, simple guidelines for healthy eating put out by the USDA in 2011. MyPlate offers a tasty new way to think about breakfast, lunch and dinner, and Max and Munch are happy to hop on board for a fun-filled ride!
This exhibit illustrates the five food groups that are the building blocks for a healthy diet. MyPlate uses a familiar image – a meal place setting – created by the United States Department of Agriculture.
