The traditional Food Pyramid was recently replaced by MyPlate. It seems like a sensible move, as it’s much easier to put food on a plate than stack it into a pyramid. OSU’s Be Well blog is looking for examples of real plates. The Post My Plate contest is easy to enter: Take a picture of your (hopefully healthy and well-balanced) plate of food and post it to the Be Well Facebook page by midnight on Dec. 3. You could win a prize, or bask in the glory of inspiring others with your healthy eating!

If you need guidance, check out the resources on Extension’s Food & Nutrition community page.
