The food guide pyramid has been replaced with a new graphic…a dinner plate. The new guide is based on the updated 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans. Learn more about “My Plate” by exploring the website.
MyPlate Focuses on:
-Making your plate half fruits and vegetables
-Making at least half your grains whole-grains
-Switching to fat-free or low-fat (1%) milk
-Enjoying your food, but in smaller portions
It’s about redesigning your plate!
