Breaking news: the new graphic icon representing the 2010 US dietary guidelines and replacing the food pyramid, which will officially be announced by the White House next Thursday is in fact a round graphic, a dinner plate or a wheel (not to be confused with a pie chart, cake or pizza pie)!
You heard it first on Lighthearted Locavore yesterday in "It's Official: Food Pyramid To Be Replaced" when I said "I have my fingers crossed that the soon to be released graphic is a round plate half filled with colorful fruits and vegetables. I'm still unclear how the current food pyramid lasted for nearly 20 years as there was a constant stream of criticism about how confusing the pyramid is,  never mind that it was a politically charged document crafted by food industry lobbyists in part, and hierarchical, with good foods on the bottom and less good foods on the top, to the point of being wildly misleading. Australia's Guide to Healthy Eating is a plate representation with almost half fruits and vegetables.
Sweden has taken the study of the plates one step further, to address the carbon emissions of their food supply, proposals to the EU contain an environmental impact number giving equal weight to health and climate.


The Barilla Center for Food and Nutrition, a global think tank, addresses climate and environmental issues along with food with its "double pyramid". The number of food servings a person needs depends upon their sex, age, body type and physical activity.
Marion Nestle, nutritionist and former FDA insider, has done a great job over the years writing about dietary guidelines, including on her blog, Food Politics.
Andrew Weil, natural health and wellness doctor and one of my favorite integrative nutrition gurus, has his "anti-inflammatory" pyramid which emphasizes a plant based diet rich in fruits and vegetables (I love that chocolate rests on the top!) as does Harvard with their "healthy eating pyramid". Department of Agriculture, the dietary guidelines symbol, the "food plate", is reminiscent of a colorful painting by Mark Rothko, the Russian born abstract expressionist who paints in bright, yet earthy colors (always in rectangles and never ever in a circular shape).


The recommendation is to eat 3 to 5 servings of vegetables and 2 to 4 servings of fruits daily. A small amount of oil or fat is needed but it should be used sparingly due to the high energy content.
