The National Wheat Foundation Partners with My Plate
Washington, D.C. (May 24, 2023) The National Wheat Foundation is pleased to join the USDA Center for Nutrition Policy and Promotion as a MyPlate National Strategic Partner. The partnership presents a wealth of resources and collaborative opportunities, aimed to enlighten individuals about the advantages of incorporating wheat into their dietary choices.
At its core, MyPlate is a scientifically grounded initiative, crafted to impart knowledge on the merits of wholesome eating and encourage adjustments in our dietary habits that can yield significant long-term benefits.
“We are looking forward to working with MyPlate as we help educate the benefits wheat can have in a person’s diet by empowering individuals to make informed dietary choices,” said Bernard Peterson, Chairman of the National Wheat Foundation and wheat farmer from Kentucky. “By teaching people about the benefits of incorporating wheat into their eating habits, we have the opportunity to positively impact their lives and foster a healthier future for everyone.”
To learn more about MyPlate, we invite you to explore MyPlate.gov or use the Start Simple app. We also encourage everyone to embark on their journey with the MyPlate Quiz, offering an engaging and informative way to begin this transformative eating endeavor.
