Liking The Plate Thing

It's one of those things that leaves the government open to criticism and brings some chuckles, but I kinda like the change from a food pyramid to a plate. was unveiled earlier this week with help from the First Lady.

I can see my kids knowing this plate, and I can see myself using it too.

As a parent, I like to try to convince my kids the value of a well-balanced meal.  I've struggled, though, to even remember the pyramid thing.  In fact, the pyramid thing tended to make me forget the four food groups nutrition guide I grew up knowing.  How many groups did the pyramid have?  What was on top?  Huh?

So, credit to someone in the Obama Administration for a government innovation worth sinking your teeth into.
