After twenty years, the USDA has replaced the sometimes maligned Food Pyramid with the “Food Plate.” Dubbed “My Food Plate,” the image shows a plate with half of its content made up of fruits and vegetables. Michele Obama introduced the new guidelines and image this week.
Other recommendations include:
- Make at least half of your grains whole grains
- Reduce sodium
- Reduce fat
- Drink water instead of sugary drinks
