Our progress

Nestlé USA’s Balance Your Plate is a nutrition education campaign that aims to help consumers build well-balanced, enjoyable, and convenient meals that meet the Dietary Guidelines for Americans.

The initiative includes recommendations for pairing our prepared meals and pizzas, such as STOUFFER’S® entrees, with fruits, vegetables, whole grains and low-fat dairy. Nestlé also offers “Balance Your Plate on a Budget,” which provides 14 daily meal plans, enabling a family of four to eat healthfully for less than $180 per week, consistent with the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s “Healthy Eating on a Budget” tool.

The easy to follow meal plans provide recommendations for pairing frozen prepared foods with fruits, vegetables, whole grains and low-fat dairy for balanced meal planning. Balance Your Plate with Nestlé helps consumers find unique ways to integrate more nutrition throughout the day, while managing portions and calorie intake.
