Let's Move! initiative, Goya Foods, the largest, Hispanic-owned U.S. food company, is committing resources to promote the USDA's MyPlate, or MiPlato, a new food group symbol to remind families about making healthy meal choices with easy “how-tos” about proper portions. The partnership includes cookbook distributions, education programs throughout cities across the U.S., coupons and more.
Eating unhealthy in the Latino community unfortunately isn't unusual. We eat so much fried food, especially in poor communities. With a high case of diabetes and obesity, why not start eating healthier! Maybe it's because fried chicken and french fries are extremely delicious lol. My taste buds aren't used to healthier foods unfortunately. So let's try to go against the grain and start eating those salads, soups and absolutely nothing fried.
