4 5 Basic Food Groups FRUITS
Any fruit or 100% fruit juice counts as part of the Fruit Group. Fruits may be fresh, canned, frozen, or dried, and may be whole, cut-up, or pureed. Apples Pineapple 100% Fruit Juice Bananas Raisins orange Grapefruit Strawberries apple Grapes Watermelon grape Oranges Blueberries grapefruit Peaches Melons Pears Lemons

5 5 Basic Food Groups Vegetables
Any vegetable or 100% vegetable juice counts as a member of the Vegetable Group. Vegetables may be raw or cooked; fresh, frozen, canned, or dried/dehydrated; and may be whole, cut-up, or mashed. Vegetables are organized into 5 subgroups, based on their nutrient content. Dark Green Vegetables broccoli, spinach Beans and peas black beans, black-eyed peas, garbanzo beans (chickpeas) kidney beans Starchy vegetables corn, green peas, potatoes. Red & orange vegetables carrots, sweet potatoes, tomatoes Other vegetables Asparagus, celery, cucumbers

6 5 Basic Food Groups Protein Foods
Select a variety of protein foods to improve nutrient intake and health benefits, including at least 8 ounces of cooked seafood per week. Young children need less, depending on their age and calorie needs.  Protein Types Meats Soy Products Poultry Nuts and Seeds Eggs Seafood Beans and Peas

7 5 Basic Food Groups Dairy
All fluid milk products and many foods made from milk are considered part of this food group. Most Dairy Group choices should be fat-free or low-fat. Foods made from milk that have little to no calcium, such as cream cheese, cream, and butter, are not. Calcium-fortified soymilk (soy beverage) is also part of the Dairy Group. Milk Cheese Calcium-fortified soymilk Yogurt Milk-based desserts (Puddings, ice milk, frozen yogurt, ice cream)

10 Cut back on foods high in solid fats, added sugars, and salt
Build a healthy plate Before you eat, think about what goes on your plate or in your cup or bowl. Foods like vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low-fat dairy products, and lean protein foods contain the nutrients you need without too many calories. Try some of these options. Make half your plate fruits and vegetables. Switch to skim or 1% milk. Make at least half your grains whole. Vary your protein food choices. Keep your food safe to eat Cut back on foods high in solid fats, added sugars, and salt Many people eat foods with too much solid fats, added sugars, and salt (sodium). Added sugars and fats load foods with extra calories you don't need. Too much sodium may increase your blood pressure. Choose foods and drinks with little or no added sugars. Look out for salt (sodium) in foods you buy - it all adds up. Eat fewer foods that are high in solid fats.

11 Eat the right amount of calories for you Be physically active your way
Everyone has a personal calorie limit. Staying within yours can help you get to or maintain a healthy weight. People who are successful at managing their weight have found ways to keep track of how much they eat in a day, even if they don't count every calorie. Enjoy your food, but eat less. Cook more often at home, where you are in control of what's in your food. When eating out, choose lower calorie menu options. Write down what you eat to keep track of how much you eat. Be physically active your way Pick activities that you like and start by doing what you can, at least 10 minutes at a time. Every bit adds up, and the health benefits increase as you spend more time being active.  Children and adolescents should do 60 minutes or more of physical activity each day. Most of it should be either moderate or vigorous intensity aerobic physical activity, and should include vigorous-intensity physical activity at least 3 days a week.
