Michelle Obama Unveils New Food Pyramid

Just don't call it a pie chart. On Thursday, Michelle Obama unveiled a new diagram for healthy eating, replacing the old food pyramid with a plate divided into basic food groups. The new design, called MyPlate, is divided into four sections, for fruit, vegetables, grains, and protein, with a smaller circle next to it for dairy. The plate was created by the Department of Agriculture with help from Michelle Obama's anti-obesity team, and will play a role in the department's upcoming healthy-eating campaign over the next year. The first half of the campaign will encourage people to make half their plate fruit and vegetables, while the second half will teach people to avoid large portions and drink fewer sugary drinks.
