MyPlate is the new graphic symbol recently released by the United States Department of Agriculture that replaces the USDA’s MyPyramid image. The MyPlate icon is a simple circle split into four sections that include protein, whole grains, fruits and vegetables; a circle shape next to the plate represents dairy products. The sections are different sizes to reflect the portions that are recommended. The new symbol is intended to be a simple visual cue that supports the 2010 Dietary Guidelines.
