The portion concept is simple. When you are ready to eat a meal, fill half of your plate with vegetables and fruit, then choose your whole grain products, meat, and alternatives. Complete your meal with a glass of milk or water. The EatWell Plate makes it easy to have a balanced meal, without having to track food servings or count calories.
Healthy Eating made simple with the EatWell Plate.
The proper vegetables and fruit portions are an important source of vitamins, minerals, and fiber. A diet rich in fruit and vegetables may reduce the risk of heart disease and some types of cancer.
This plate is divided into three sections. Half of the plate highlights vegetables and fruit intake, one-quarter of the plate represents Grain products and the other quarter represents Meat and Alternatives. Each section has vibrant colors that correlate to colors found in the Canada Food Guide. Colour and images help reinforce eating a balanced meal.
The Eat Well Plate helps you remember to eat healthy every time you sit down to eat. Even when you are not at home, you’ll remember the visual cues of the plate and make healthy eating a lifetime habit.
