The USDA Food Pyramid Becomes a Dinner Plate

 

Food Pyramid Gets a Makeover (USDA.gov)

Are you eating the right amounts of the different food groups?

Since 1992, the United States Department of Agriculture has used the food pyramid to demonstrate the proper amounts of fruits, vegetables, grains, meat and dairy to eat in order to stay the healthiest.

Last Thursday, June 2, the USDA rolled out it’s new food icon, the dinner plate. It’s divided into two larger sections representing grains and vegetables and two smaller sections of fruit and protien with a cup of dairy on the side.
First Lady Michele Obama helped unveil the new design and said, “when it comes to eating, what’s more useful than a plate, what’s more simple than a plate?” 
The USDA also showed off it’s accompanying website, www.choosemyplate.gov, which will eventually feature interactive tools to help people manage their weight and track their exercise.
I’m still wondering where on the plate do I put my dessert?
