Healthy Eating Plate Chart

Harvard Healthy Eating Chart: Food for the Brain

Start off the New Year with the Harvard School of Public Health Healthy Eating Plate. Half of your plate should be filled with vegetables and fruit. The other half of your plate should be whole grains and healthy protein. This is a very simple program that is based on research without bowing to the food industry lobbyists. The Healthy Plate does not include dairy products. It recommends that we eat no more than 2 servings of dairy per day. “Limit milk and dairy products to one to two servings per day, since high intakes are associated with increased risk of prostate cancer and possibly ovarian cancer.” It is easy to get calcium from other sources. “Calcium can also be found in dark green, leafy vegetables, such as kale and collard greens, as well as in dried beans and legumes.”
