Food Pyramid Transformation

In 2005, the United States Department of agriculture introduced the new a more comprehensive food guide pyramid called “MyPyramid”.

MyPyramid focuses on personalized eating plans and provides interactive tools to help Americans plan their eating habits.

The most drastic change is the importance placed on activity, signified by the stairs to the left of MyPyramid.


Grains

Grains

MyPyramid suggests that the average American have:

At least 4 ounces of whole grain bread, cereal, cracker, pasta, and rice everyday.

Look for “whole”before the grain on your food packages

Whole grains contain the entire grainkernel (bran, germ, and endosperm). Examples include:

whole-wheat flour

bulgur (cracked wheat)

oatmeal

whole cornmeal

brown rice


Vegetables

Vegetables

MyPyramid suggests that the average American have:

At least 3 cups of a variety of vegetables each day

Vegetables can be raw, cooked, canned, or frozen

Eat vegetables of all different colors because they provide different nutrients


Fruits

Fruits

MyPyramid suggests that the average American have:

At least 2 cups of fruit each day

Fruit can be fresh, frozen, canned, dried, and in the form of juice

Oils

MyPyramid suggests that the average American have:

2 tablespoons per day

Most oils are high in monounsaturated or polyunsaturated fats, and low in saturated fats. Oils from plant sources (vegetable and nut oils) do not contain any cholesterol.

Limit solid fats like butter and Crisco

Milk

MyPyramid suggests that the average American have:

3 cups of low-fat/fat-free dairy per day

If you don’t consume milk, then choose lactose-free options to meet your calcium needs


Meats

Meats

MyPyramid suggests that the average American have:

4 to 6 ounces each day

All foods made from meat, poultry, dried beans, eggs, nuts, and seeds are a part of this group.

Choose low-fat or lean meats and try baking, broiling, or grilling the meats
