2011: MyPlate
  • Introduced along with updating of USDA food patterns for the
    2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans
  • Different shape to help grab consumers’ attention with a new visual cue
  • Icon that serves as a reminder for healthy eating, not intended to provide
    specific messages
  • Visual is linked to food and is a familiar mealtime symbol in consumers’
    minds, as identified through testing
  • “My” continues the personalization approach from MyPyramid
