Introducing the New Food Icon MyPlate
With Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack
The Department of Agriculture introduces the new food icon, MyPlate, to replace the MyPyramid image as the government's primary food group symbol. An easy-to-understand visual cue to help consumers adopt healthy eating habits, MyPlate is consistent with the 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans.
Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack presents the food groups represented by MyPlate: vegetables, fruits, grains, dairy and protein.Flag this Video
