Building Food Plates Where the Food Pyramid Once Stood

It will be interesting to see how the new food plate resembles these designs, especially in terms of portion sizes, and if the USDA icon actually changes our food-buying behavior.

Most of our decisions, after all, are made in the cereal aisle, in the produce section, or in the drive-thru. We generally don't look at a chart with advice about overall diet when it comes to specific purchases. That's why, in addition to a mandatory calorie counts, it's time we redesigned the nutrition label for clearer, more concise, and easier to read guidance as well.
