I admit, it's smarter to visualize the concept of healthy eating the USDA is aimed at promoting on a plate rather than the old pyramid design. More interesting than the design change are the category modifications. Gone are the starches and carbohydrates that made up the bottom level of the old pyramid. Also missing is the top level of oils, fats, and sweets. This was a deliberate move hoping to combat ever rising levels of obesity in children and adults across the country.
Do you think this will change the way Americans eat?
