ESHA is proud to be a MyPlate Strategic Partner!
As a Strategic Partner, ESHA joins other healthcare professionals who share the USDA mission of promoting health through the Dietary Guidelines for Americans.
The MyPlate food guidance system divides foods into five groups (fruit, vegetable, protein, grain, and dairy) according to nutrient content, and offers meal plans that show how much food from each group to eat for optimal health. There are many resources available on the choosemyplate.gov website to help individuals meet nutrient and caloric needs and make positive eating choices.
ESHA software products incorporate the MyPlate dietary recommendations, allowing users to evaluate dietary intakes and recipes. Dietary intakes in The Food Processor report the number of servings eaten from each food group, and compare that to the number of servings recommended. A colorful summary report is available to help teach clients these basic principles of good nutrition. Food manufactures find the MyPlate food groups useful in Genesis R&D for reporting food group assignments in recipe formulations. These can be reported on product packaging to show how the product fits into the food group system.
Food Processor MyPlate Dietary Intake Report
This report graphically compares a users' actual daily food intake with the optimum daily intake (per MyPlate recommendations). Users can easily and quickly see where they may be falling short and the report offers suggestions for improvement.
Genesis R&D Recipe Report
This report tells food manufacturers how much of what MyPlate food group their recipe or formula contributes to a diet plan. Although the bar graph comparison is displayed, Genesis users find the Daily Amount section much more helpful.
