After generations of kids learning the “food pyramid,” the Obama Administration is about to replace it with the “food plate”. The new chart will resemble a round dinner plate, sliced into wedges to represent reasonable proportions of fruits, veggies, grains and proteins. There’s also a smaller circle next to the plate representing a glass of milk or a cup of yogurt for dairy. Nutritionists have long claimed the “food pyramid” was confusing.
- Most people will just think it means we’re supposed to eat a lot of pizza.
- Personally I don’t care what the food plate contains as long as the plate’s big enough.
- The plate shows fruits, veggies, grains and proteins. Where’s the most important part… the dessert?
