With engaging and easy-to-read content and lively artwork, Journeyworks Publishing makes the key MyPlate messages fun to learn about and easy to remember. A community partner with the USDA Center for Nutrition Policy and Promotion, Journeyworks Publishing offers free preview copies of their new pamphlets and stickers. Professionals and educators interested in spicing up their National Nutrition Month efforts can visit Journeyworks Publishing’s MyPlate Review Pack page to request materials.

The MyPlate guidelines use a plate icon to show how much of a given type of food one should eat. But when meals don’t come divided into those neat little sections, what’s a diner to do? Journeyworks Publishing’s new pamphlet “MyPlate: Do It Your Way!” helps people understand how to make the guidelines work with the foods they actually eat.

The pamphlet “Put Me on Your Kid’s Plate: Tips for Parents” provides practical tips that parents can really use. Young kids can get into the nutrition discussion first hand with the clever drawings and fun matching game offered in the “Put Me on Your Plate” activity pamphlet.

Older, more independent kids making healthy choices (or not) during the school day is the subject of the pamphlet “MyPlate: Nutrition Made Easy.” With Greg Evans’ popular Luann comic strip characters presenting the MyPlate messages, healthy eating choices are made relevant to teens' lives in a humorous way.

Journeyworks Publishing also offers a “Put Me On Your Plate” sticker sheet for kids and two full-color posters. The “Put Me On Your Plate: Write On, Wipe Off! Activity and Menu Poster” is perfect for lesson plans or daily use and offers plenty of room to draw healthy foods, create and post menus and more. The “Put Me On Your Plate” poster is a lively display of the main MyPlate messages and caricatures of healthy foods. Both posters are perfect for classrooms or cafeterias, or any other place where healthy eating reminders are helpful.

Educators and other professionals interested in nutrition education and the MyPlate guidelines can visit Journeyworks Publishing’s MyPlate Review Pack page to request preview copies of the pamphlets and stickers.
