Healthier Together: MyPlate New Year’s Challenge

Join us for the MyPlate New Year’s Challenge on SuperTracker during the month of January! All month, MyPlate will be challenging participants to focus on the MyPlate food groups and physical activity. Each week, a new food group will be added to the Challenge. Participants will use the Quick Tracker to log their foods and physical activities, and winners will be announced every Friday.

Here’s an overview of each week of the Challenge, to get you excited for what’s to come!

  • Week One: Dairy and Physical Activity
  • Week Two: Fruits, Dairy, and Physical Activity
  • Week Three: Vegetables, Fruits, Dairy, and Physical Activity
  • Week Four: Protein Foods, Vegetables, Fruit, Dairy, and Physical Activity
  • Week Five: Grains, Protein Foods, Vegetables, Fruit, Dairy, and Physical Activity
