Reviewers Comments: The following Choose MyPlate tip sheets, part of the 10 Tips Nutrition Education Series, were translated to create two-sided bilingual versions: one side in English and the other in Vietnamese.
  • 10 Tips to a great plate (Tip Sheet No. 1) - tips and ideas for balancing calories and choosing foods to eat more or less of according to MyPlate guidance.
  • Build a healthy meal (Tip Sheet No. 7) - simple steps to create healthy meals that are consistent with MyPlate recommendations.

  • Eating better on a budget (Tip Sheet No. 16) - 10 tips to help people on a limited income stretch their food budget while eating healthfully through the three "Ps": planning, purchasing, and preparing meals.
  • Make Better Beverage Choices (Tip Sheet No. 19) - tips for making better choices with beverages, which can be as important as what food is eaten.
  • Choose Whole Grain Foods (Tip Sheet No. 22) - tips for selecting whole grain products and keeping them fresh and safe to eat.
  • Be An Active Family (Tip Sheet No. 29) - tips to help adults get their recommended 2 1/2 hours of physical activity per week, and children their recommended 60 minutes a day.
  • Be Active Adults (Tip Sheet No. 30) - tips to help adulst add physical activity into their day.
  • MyPlate Icon - a simple handout that includes a large version of the MyPlate icon, complete with food group names translated to Vietnamese.
These tip sheets and MyPlate icon can serve as a basis on which SNAP educators could plan a lesson on healthy eating or food budgeting and meal planning, though they may wish to refer to for more in-depth and supporting information. Alternatively, these tip sheets could be provided as takeaway handouts following a class or posted/provided in waiting rooms at health clinics or SNAP offices in areas where there is a large population of Vietnamese-speaking individuals.

Of note to users, a "reverse-translation" of these documents from Vietnamese into English was not available, so the quality of the translation could not be verified.
