Goodbye Food Pyramid, Hello Food Plate
Today, the USDA and First Lady Michelle Obama introduced MyPlate, the updated version of the American nutrition guide -- the food pyramid.
1. Enjoy your food, but eat less.
2. Avoid oversized portions.
3. Make half your plate fruits and vegetables.
4. Make at least half your grains whole grains.
6. Compare sodium in foods like soup, bread, and frozen meals -- and choose the foods with lower numbers.
