Food Guide Pyramid Makeover- MyPlate.

Submitted by

MyPlate 150x150 Food Guide Pyramid Makeover  MyPlate.So what is all the recent buzz about the Food Guide Pyramid changing from a pyramid to a Plate?  It’s tough to keep up with all of the changes is dietary advice.  I still remember the four food groups from when I was little!

In attempt to promote healthy Nutrition behavior in the United States, the USDA is now rolling out MyPlate.  It seems as if the food guide pyramid may have been a little confusing for many people and to be honest I do think it makes more sense to have a Plate as the New generation icon.  It’s simple, easy to understand and is being done in an effort to create cohesion among the various federal agencies to support the 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans.

The main goal of The Center for Nutrition Policy and Promotion (an organization of the U.S. Department of Agriculture) is to improve the nutrition and well-being of Americans.

MyPlate recommends the following:

  • ” Enjoy your food, but eat less.
  • Avoid oversized portions.
  • Make half your flate fruits and vegetables.
  • Make at least half your grains whole grains.
  • Switch to fat-free or low-fat )1% milk.
  • Reduce Sodium- Compare sodium in foods like soup, bread, and frozen meals ― and choose the foods with lower numbers.
  • Drink water instead of sugary drinks.”

To get more information on MyPlate the agency has set up a new website: www.ChooseMyPlate.gov The website also provides lots of weight loss tips and resources as well as sample menus.
