What is MyPlate?
In June 2011, MyPlate replaced MyPyramid as the U.S. government's primary food group symbol. MyPlate is an easy-to-understand visual cue to help consumers adopt healthy eating habits consistent with the 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans.
MyPlate provides practical information to help consumers build healthier diets with resources and tools for dietary assessment, nutrition education, and other user-friendly nutrition information. The online resources and tools can empower people to make healthier food choices for themselves, their families, and their children.
