What's on Your Plate?

I grew up with the Food Pyramid -- it may have changed a little through the years, but it was always the pyramid. Well, now the USDA has come up with new reccommendations and a brand new look. My Plate is an easier way to visually see the USDA guidelines for eating. Here's the link to the website with more information: http://www.choosemyplate.gov/. We'll be talking a little about this in ZumbAtomic because smart eating is an important part of being healthy and staying fit. Just like moving your body is.

What do you think? Is the My Plate easier to understand and visualize than the pyramid? What are your tips for getting kids to eat healthy?
