Food Pyramid Gets a Makeover

USDA.gov

The food pyramid, which since 1992 has demonstrated the proper amount of grains, fruits, vegetables, dairy and meat a person should consume per day, is no more.

On Thursday, the USDA rolled out the government’s new food icon: A plate divided into two larger sections of grains and vegetables, two smaller sections of fruit and protein, with a glass of dairy on the side.

“When it comes to eating, what’s more useful than a plate, what’s more simple than a plate?” said First Lady Michelle Obama, who helped unveil the new icon.

Nutrition experts have praised the plate’s design, suggesting it’s easier to, well, digest than the pyramid it replaced.
