Goodbye Food Pyramid!

Just read an article that explained that the FDA is now retiring the MyPyramid image ( aka the food pyramid). The new logo will be a pie graph shaped plate. Apparently, according to Michelle Obama, the MyPyramid logo which closely resembles the classic food pyramid that was used from the late 1950's till just recently did not really catch peoples attention. The new logo resembles a plate and has sections off what part or percentage of food should be from which category (fruits, vegetables, protein etc.)

I am going to miss the classic food pyramid! I don't mind the new design, but I do think that this will be easier to comprehend and hopefully aide the public in choosing the right portions for better health.
