Ever since I can remember, the "Food Pyramid" has been in place. It was the thing that you learned about in grade school that told you just how many foods from each food groups you should eat each day, and what foods belonged in that food group. I'm sure many of you are in the same boat, and that has been your dietary guide (if you used one) since as far back as you can remember. Well, the food pyramid has been thrown out the window.
What do we have to base our dietary choices off of and use to teach our children about nutrition now? MyPlate. Which is really more of a graph than anything else.
