The Real Food Plate

While the USDA hasn't yet released the new "food icon" which will replace the food pyramid, we (along with some food experts) are hopeful it will help people make better food choices.

I fear, however, the new food icon will miss an opportunity to help people learn how to eat more real food and eat less processed food. So, to get a jump on the USDA and further the conversation about Real Food, click on the image below for more information on The Real Food PlateTM designed to help people recognize and enjoy more real food.

  1. I'm not sure how important the icon will be if there is no education behind it. I'm amazed at how little people know when it comes to proper nutrition. Kids & parents alike are all but brainwashed into thinking that breakfast, lunch & dinner come from cardboard boxes covered in cartoons. We have a long way to go & we're headed in the right direction.
