Recipes that “align with the dietary guidelines” of MyPlate
and that have limited added sugar, limited saturated fat, and low sodium will soon get the MyPlate seal of approval
Michelle Obama, as part her promotion of the third anniversary of Let’s Move
, told Robin Roberts on “Good Morning America” that the MyPlate recipe partners are busy “compiling, labeling and promoting recipes that meet the MyPlate guidelines.” (The first lady's remarks about MyPlate occur at about the 2:00 mark.)
The MyPlate recipe partners include media companies Condé Nast Magazines, Hearst Magazines, Meredith, Food Network and Time Inc. and 18 cooking websites including my favorite Allrecipes and others such as Food Network and Good Housekeeping.
There’s also a new MyPlate Recipes Pinterest
page that currently has almost 900 recipes pinned and is expected to eventually feature over 3,000 recipes.
