So long Pyramid, Hello MyPlate!

MyPlateIt's here! Did you hear about the new arrival of the healthy plate image! It's definitely user friendly, easy to understand and less complex than the old Pyramid concept! Will it help Americans fight the bulge and improve their health? The jury's still out, but I know one thing is for sure, it can't hurt!

I think this is a great concept for younger children and can help anyone put together a healthy plate as easy as 1,2,3! So will millions of people take advantage of the website and the tools for weight loss and weight management? We will have to wait and see!

My challenge for you is to visualize this image in your head and see how your dinner sizes up to this plate tonight! This tool will help many increase fruits and vegetables in their diet! Is this the ANSWER to our obesity rates in America? Probably not but it is a step in the right direction as far as I am concerned!
