The 2010 Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee emphasized diets high in vegetables and fruits are beneficial for health, with nutrients that can help reduce the risk of chronic diseases. Eating more fruits and vegetables can help Americans consume more potassium, and dietary fiber, which the Committee identified as two of the four short-fall nutrients. The recent MyPlate message, "Make half your plate fruits and vegetables," is a behavioral strategy for encouraging Americans to address these nutritional issues. This webinar will review frequently consumed vegetables and fruits, along with the economic impact, in order to assist registered dietitians in developing affordable menus to help school children fill "half their plates with fruits and vegetables."
