Shape Your Plate the MyPlate Way!

Posted on Mar 07, 2012 by Maggie LaBarbera


I am excited to share with you this fun challenge from our partners at Healthy Kids Challenge.

In recognition of National Nutrition Month, Healthy Kids Challenge is inviting after school programs, youth leaders and families to take the Shape Your Plate Challenge!
They love to showcase your photos on their website and hear how you shaped your plate with real foods!  

Start with these Activity Ideas -

  1. Ask students how they shaped their plate according to (using real foods or food picture cut outs) and snap a photo of their correctly shaped plate.
  2. You’ve heard of a “Fantasy Team”, have kids create a “Fantasy MyPlate” shaped with their favorite menu items. See details at
  3. Challenge staff to check the shape of their plate and submit a photo, too.

Share the information in 2 easy steps -

  1. Any time before April 15, submit the photos to Describe the plate and tell us why those foods were chosen.
  2. Watch for the photos to be featured on the Healthy Kids Challenge facebook page and posted on our web site

Each entry has a chance to be showcased. One winner receives a fun HKC T-shirt and Explore MyPlate wristbands. It’s as easy as uploading a photo to facebook.   

Challenge your students and family to share their plate! Send your photos today!
