MyPlate Icon

MyPlate is a new USDA food icon which is intended to help remind consumers about healthier food choices. The new MyPlate icon emphasizes the fruit, vegetable, grains, protein and dairy food groups.

MyPlate will replace the MyPyramid image as the government’s primary food group symbol as an easy-to-understand visual cue to help consumers adopt healthy eating habits consistent with the 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans.

MyPyramid will remain available to interested health professionals and nutrition educators in a special section of the new website.
