Choose My Plate: Good or Bad? (poll)

Here is the USDA's newest Food Guide logo - Choose My Plate. New Logos of all types and even separate areas can be found here at the USDA site. It looks like they wanted to separate the physical activity from the nutrition which allowed them to simplify the number of elements needed. What do you think?

Food Pyramid Shifting to Plate Palette

Today we will see the unveiling of a new USDA nutrition guideline icon and image campaign. The Pyramid, even the updated one was woeful and not clear enough for children and adults alike. Alot of kids I know were not clear on the message it was trying to convey...and how many millions did we spend to update and revise and modernize and promote that over the past 6 years.  I know Dr. Brian Wansink of Cornell's Mindful Eating project and many other experts have been in the revising process for a "long time" so it will be great to see if the image can match the intent and communicate to both children, teens, and adults. Let us know what you think of all the changes and how will you use this new image and tools to teach your students.
