What is Half Your Plate?

Half your Plate is a healthy living initiative developed to educate and empower Canadians of all ages to eat more fruits and veggies to improve their health while providing simple and practical ways to add a variety of produce to every meal and snack. Half Your Plate is fun, practical and informative while providing tips on how to prepare fruits and veggies using different colours, flavours and textures for meals and snacks at home, at school, at work, eating out or on the go. Studies show that While Canada’s Food Guide recommends that adult females consume 7-8 servings and adult males 8-10, Canadian females are only eating 4.3 servings and male only 3.5 servings. Our goal is to get Canadians eating at least one more serving a day to improve their health.

We and our health partners (The Canadian Cancer Society, the Canadian Produce Marketing Association, the Canadian Public Health Association, and the Heart and Stroke Foundation) believe that dietitians and nutritionists play an integral part in educating Canadians on healthy eating. As such, we are creating a network of dietitians to spread the message to Canadians. All materials are free to use and you are also free to use our logo on any materials you create. We’d also love to feature any tips or articles you’ve written about incorporating fruits and vegetables onto our Fresh Ideas section or on social media.

The following digital resources are available:

  1. Posters
