MyPlate

On June 2nd, 2011 Yesterday the USDA (United States Department of Agriculture) have replaced the pyramid nutrition with "My Plate"
With its icon-shaped plate with bright colors.

My Plate has 4 sides of vegetables, fruits, grains and protein, on the right there are small circles represent milk and other dairy products. This icon is to help people adapt healthy eating habits every day.

Change this icon no longer expected to misinterpretation and reduce obesity rates among young people in America. Because the new icon is very easy to understand. In each dish meal containing fruit and vegetables fresh.

On My Plate USDA website recommends eating smaller portions, half of the plate should contain vegetables and fresh fruit and avoid sugary drinks. Nutritionists believe this campaign is the best option.
