In celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month (September 15 – October 15), the American Diabetes Association is introducing its new interactive nutrition tool in English and Spanish: Create Your Plate.
The Create Your Plate tool allows diabetes.org users to create a balanced meal by prompting them to choose popular ingredients common in the Latino community. The tool also provides preparation tips and portion sizes, utilizing the Association recommended Create Your Plate method.
Create Your Plate and Share It!
Create your plate, take a photo and upload it to social media (Twitter, Facebook and Instagram) using the hashtag #CreateYourPlate in English and #ArmeSuPlato in Spanish. Selected photos will be featured on a photo gallery located on the Hispanic Heritage Month’s landing page: diabetes.org/hhm (English) and diabetes.org/mh (Spanish).
