dc.description.abstractIncreased dietary intake of fruits and vegetables is associated with lower risk of chronic diseases. However, most Americans don't meet dietary guidelines for fruit and vegetable (FV) consumption, particularly those in low income categories. MyPlate messages were developed to remind food pantry consumers to "make half your plate fruits and vegetables." This study was conducted to evaluate the impact of the MyPlate icon and this consumer message on dietary intake of FV in food pantry clients.en_US
