Adding Color to Your Plate Learning Lesson

The Self-Learning segments provide an in-depth look at important topics within each of the Families, Food, and Fitness areas. Each learning area is made up of multiple sections that may take more time than other material on the site to complete. Because the learning areas present more information, we suggest you set aside 15 – 30 minutes to enjoy the full benefit of each Self-Learning segment.


Eating fruits and vegetables are a very important component to having a healthy, well-balanced diet as shown by the My Pyramid. MyPyramid tells us exactly how much of each food group we should be eating in easy-to-understand measurements.
