Reviewers Comments: Choose MyPlate: Selected Consumer Messages is a wonderful set of slides that can be used by educators, either while working side by side with SNAP-Ed participants, or for their own knowledge. The slides introduce the new USDA food guidance system, MyPlate, and review the changes evident from previous versions. The material in the slides is based on the 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans which focuses on balancing calories with physical activity and encourages Americans to consume more healthy foods like vegetables, fruits, whole grains, and fat-free and low fat dairy products. This resource is available as an online slideshow or PowerPoint that can be printed at no cost.

The presentation follows a logical outline and flows smoothly. Clear headings are provided for each new topic area. Pictures, shading, boxes and arrows are used to direct attention to key points. The slides also contain pie charts which are simple and easy to understand. The designs and layouts of the slideshow are attractive and make the material more visually appealing and interesting to participants. Questions and answers are included on some of the slides to make the presentation more interactive. Reference information is provided for the information included in the slides. Certain screenshots are taken directly from the Web site. It may be helpful to show the actual MyPlate Web site when using this PowerPoint.

This resource would be an excellent supplement for SNAP-Ed providers who are using the MyPlate materials in a presentation or as teaching aids in a classroom. The PowerPoint can be interactive and useful in emphasizing the main points of MyPlate. It can be an ideal resource to teach individuals who are interested in topics such as nutrient density or added sugars or those who just want to know how to incorporate MyPlate into their lifestyle.
