Food Models

National Dairy Council’s food models can help make teaching nutrition easy and fun.

All ages

They are versatile, printer-friendly and bring the 2015 Dietary Guidelines for Americans (DGA) and MyPlate recommendations to life. When printed, these food model cards represent true-to-life serving sizes of the individual foods. Print double-sided to provide the nutrient information on the back of the images in a format similar to the updated 2018 Nutrition Facts labels.

The DGA recommends Americans aged 2 and older make smart nutrition choices. Healthy eating patterns include low-fat or fat-free dairy foods, fruits, vegetables, whole grains and lean protein (e.g., meats, poultry, fish, beans, eggs and nuts).
