Well, another birthday has come and gone! For MyPlate that is! It’s hard to believe that it’s been two years since the USDA rocked our world by introducing the new MyPlate icon along with the 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans. At that very moment, we scrapped everything we knew in the MyPyramid; everything that was familiar. Here at NCES, we threw out any products that depicted the ‘dated’ MyPyramid image and began recreating our awesome educational handouts to include the all-new MyPlate. Since then, we’ve added many new products to the line, including the NCES MyPlate Food Model Kit, NCES Right-Sized plates for portion control and much more.
So, even though MyPlate’s actual birthday has come and gone (June 2nd), we’re going to continue celebrating all week! How can you join the celebration? It’s simple!
