The USDA announced a couple of months ago that it’ll be doing away with the food pyramid, which was divided to show us how many servings of each food group we need in a day. In its place is a new food plate with sections to represent how much of each food group should occupy your plate.

Learn more about it in this ABC News story, and then vote in our Facebook poll to tell us which one you prefer.

Your feedback will help us write a longer post about the changes!
