    Pyramid Improving the quality of food

    our children eat.

    A presentation by Cristina Hunter Myers

  • The Food Pyramid came out in 1992, the new and

    improved version, My Plate came out in 2011.

    This new visual is thought to be easier to read for

    consumers, and easier to follow and remember.

    It encourages one protein source, one whole

    grain, one fruit, one vegetable and one dairy

    (milk).

  • United States Department of Agriculture Child and Adult Care Food Program

    The USDA has a program called the Child and

    Adult Care Food Program

    This program uses the guide MyPlate sets forth to

    ensure children and adults are fed nutritious meals

    Child food amounts are broken down by the age

    of a child and depend on what food group they

    are eating
