MyPlate replaced the food pyramid as the US government's easy to understand guide to dietary recommendations. According to MyPlate, what portion of a person's meals should be made of fruits and vegetables?

Fruits and vegetables together should make up half the meal.

Explanation

•According to MyPlate, fruits and vegetables together should make up one-half of a person's meal, but there is no emphasis on a strict amount of either.

•The 2010 update to the dietary recommendations implemented MyPlate as a visual reminder to balance the diet, rather than suggesting a specific percentage or amount of intake recommended for each food group.
