What's on MyPlate

Meet MyPlate - the most up-to-date guide for healthy eating. MyPlate offers simple, budget-friendly ways to make healthy choices at every age.

A good pyramid led to an even better plate.

Remember the Food Guide Pyramid? It was great for its time, but much has changed since 1992. That’s why we retired the Food Pyramid and created MyPlate - the modern, customizable approach to healthy eating based on decades of science. MyPlate is an easy-to-use, trusted source of nutrition information for every stage of life.

What changed?

MyPlate captures the national nutrition guidelines in a simple way that allows you to make the most of every bite. Here are the three things we love most about MyPlate.
