Newly Updated for MyPlate and the 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans!
In spring 2013, the Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) released an update to the nutrition education resource, Eat Smart, Live Strong. This resource, now consistent with the 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans and MyPlate, was originally released in 2008.
Eat Smart, Live Strong is an intervention designed to improve fruit and vegetable consumption and physical activity among 60-74 year olds participating in or eligible for FNS nutrition assistance programs. The intervention can support the efforts of program providers and communities in delivering nutrition education to low-income older adults.
