Diversify Your Plate

Home Blog Diversify Your Plate

Duke Dining and Nutrition Services have created a nutrition education program called Diversify Your Plate. This is an extension of our current Balance Your Plate program which aims to educate students about how to enjoy a balanced meal. 

Diversify Your Plate takes this program a step further providing information and examples on the health benefits and taste of culturally diverse balanced meals.  Our goal is to encourage students to learn, experience, and understand the benefits of culturally diverse cuisines. Balanced Eating….  is a global thing!

This year we have focused on different cultural cuisine types, offering examples of how to create a balanced plate for each culture cuisine type including a Latin American plate, a Native American plate, and an African plate, and this month we are featuring examples of East Asia, South Asia, Asian American, and Pacific Islander plates.
