On Tuesday, November 8th, Dr. Robert Post visited Sargent College to present the “USDA’s New MyPlate Initiative: Putting the Dietary Guidelines into Action” for the 13th Annual Dudley Allen Sargent Lecture. As Deputy Director of the USDA’s Center for Nutrition Policy and Promotion (CNPP), Post oversees the MyPlate Initiative‘s design, website development and communications campaign.
Dr. Post described MyPlate’s collaboration with First Lady Michelle Obama: “It really brings home the issue of improving our healthy choices, but because of the affiliation with Let’s Move!, it also shows that we’re not only talking about healthy choices. We’re really also talking about balancing those food choices with physical activity.”
Dining Services and the Nutrition & Fitness Center are excited to offer Sargent Choice exclusive options at all of the student dining halls tonight beginning at 5:00 PM. Sargent Choice only holds these nights once per semester – don’t miss out on a chance to try some delicious, healthy dishes!
