Harvard Eating Plate Tips



  1. Choose good carbs. Whole grains are your best bet.
  2. Pay attention to the protein package. Fish, poultry, nuts, and beans are the best choices.
  3. Choose foods with healthy fats. Plant oils, nuts, and fish are the healthiest sources.
  4. Eat more vegetables and fruits. Go for color and variety—dark green, yellow, orange, and red.
  5. Calcium is important. But milk isn’t the only, or even best, source.
  6. Water is best to quench your thirst. Skip the sugary drinks.
  7. Choose more fresh foods and fewer processed foods.
  8. Eat less salt.
  9. Moderate drinking can be healthy—but not for everyone.
  10. A daily multivitamin is a great nutrition insurance policy.
