USDA’s New Food Pyramid: My Plate

 

After nineteen years, the USDA has updated the food pyramid with the new “My Plate”:

And here are their suggestions:

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