MyPlate Replaces Food Pyramid
Yesterday the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) replaced the food pyramid with MyPlate.
MyPlate is a visual reminder to make half of your plate fruits and vegetables. It also shows the other food groups that make a well-balanced meal: whole grains, lean proteins, and low fat dairy. MyPlate is based on the 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans.
Share what’s on your plate by taking a photo of your next meal. Then post it on Twitter using the hashtag #MyPlate.
