Smart Eating: Focus on Balance, Variety and Proportion

“There are three elements from the Choose My Plate Guidelines that are necessary to achieve healthy eating,” says Registered Dietitian Ann Marie Smokowski, who provides nutrition counseling at Mercy Hospital of Buffalo.
  1. Balance - Selecting appropriate foods from each of the food groups 
  2. Variety - Eating a wide array of foods from each of the food groups 
  3. Proportion - Keeping the recommended portions consistent from each of the food groups 
Food groups include grains, vegetables, fruits, dairy, protein foods, and oils.
