New Food Icons


Today in Washington, DC, First Lady Michelle Obama and Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack unveiled MyPlate, a new food icon to replace the somewhat confusing 2005 "MyPyramid" image as the "government's primary food group symbol." MyPlate emphasizes fruits, vegetables, grains, protein, and dairy food groups. Missing from the plate: sugary drinks, french fries, and dessert, because that's how Michelle Obama rolls.
