The main goal of the USDA Center for Nutrition Policy and Promotion is "to improve the health and well-being of Americans by developing and promoting dietary guidance that links scientific research to the nutrition needs of consumers." Visitors to the site can take advantage of the very useful and pragmatic guidelines surrounding daily calorie intake suggestions, the MyPlate food suggestions, and the MyFoodapedia. This last resource provides quick access to food groups, calories, and comparisons. The Know your Farmer, Know Your Food area provides information on farmers markets and community supported agriculture across the USA. On the left-hand side of the page, visitors can look through topical areas such as Nutrition Insights and USDA Food Plans: Cost of Food. The Publications area includes nutritionally-themed posters for classrooms and sample menus and recipes.
