The blogs are ragging on the USDA “wasting” $2 million on My Plate, but I personally think it’s worth it. I hated the Four Food Groups and was delighted when they threw it out. (YOU try raising dairy-allergic kids who are being forced to memorize and regurgitate the “fact” that 25% of their diet should be something they’re not allowed to have.) The Food Pyramid was a nice try, but it was too confusing. This is much better (even if our Smarter Than Gawd president doesn’t seem to get how to use it).
