MyPlate at KU

 Consider these nutritional tips to make healthier plate choices and choose nutrient dense foods daily!

  • Assemble your plate with 1/2 fruits/vegetables, 1/4 grains/starch, 1/4 protein, and 1 dairy choice.
  • 5 1/2 oz. lean meats or protein substitutes (soy, quinoa, nuts, beans, seeds)
  • 3 servings (8 oz.) dairy foods, beverages or equivalent
  • 6-11 1 oz. servings whole grains - 1/2 as whole grains
  • 2 cups fruit
  • 2 1/2 cups vegetables
These selections will maximize your intake of fiber, potassium and other vitamins & minerals and will decrease intake of added sugars, sodium and excessive fat. - Source:
