The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has come out with a new food icon called MyPlate which is used as an innovative tool offering consumers helpful information about healthy eating. MyPlate seeks a more direct visual connection with the viewer’s actual home dining experience by using a plate format to feature five food groups that are vital to a healthy diet—fruits, vegetables, grains, protein and dairy. To learn more, you can go to Choose MyPlate.
