New USDA Graphic Symbol

On June 2, ADA representatives attended the official unveiling of the U.S. government’s new graphic symbol of nutritional advice for consumers contained in the 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans. The new graphic will be a useful and intuitive way for people to eat well and improve their health, especially with the expert individualized advice provided by a registered dietitian.

The new icon is a plate split into four sections, each representing a different type of food (protein, whole grains, fruits and vegetables). The sections vary in size depending on the recommended portion of each food a person should eat. A circle shape next to the plate represents dairy products, especially milk. Viewing the icon online allows consumers to click on each section of the plate for more information.
