MyPlate

Promoted by the Obama administration, the MyPlate icon replaced 19 years of the food pyramid icon. The MyPlate icon was chosen as an easy way to remind people to be mindful of what they put on their plates. The plate is divided into four sections: fruits (20%), grains (30%), protein (20%), and vegetables (30%), with a suggested glass of milk alongside it to represent dairy intake.
