0 USDA Serves Up MyPlate, Replaces Conventional Food Pyramid

USDA food pyramid, myplate, michelle obama
The conventional food pyramid poster we all remember from Health class has been replaced with a new minimalist Simon game-esque plate.

First Lady Michelle Obama and Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack today unveiled the federal government’s new food icon, MyPlate, to serve as a reminder to help consumers make healthier food choices.

"When mom or dad comes home from a long day of work, we’re already asked to be a chef, a referee, a cleaning crew," said the First Lady, "so it’s tough to be a nutritionist, too. But we do have time to take a look at our kids’ plates. As long as they’re half full of fruits and vegetables, and paired with lean proteins, whole grains and low-fat dairy, we’re golden. That’s how easy it is."

Wait, no dessert?!
