Eat Healthy

In February 2012, Lynchburg became a Let’s Move! City, joining hundreds of communities across the country by pledging to take steps to prevent childhood obesity and make each community healthier for everyone. Since then, you will find MyPlate posted in municipal buildings and schools to encourage healthy eating habits. My Plate is USDA tool that replaced the old food pyramid and reminds us to get variety in good proportions. Half of what you eat throughout the day should have grown in a garden.  Limit processed grains and proteins to the other half.
