For Michelle Lewis Only 13

Throughout the years, a variety of dietary guidelines have been published including the Basic Seven, Basic Four, the Food Wheel, the Food Guide Pyramid, the MyPyramid Guide, and finally the newest guideline: MyPlate. However, there is one thing that has remained relatively consistent throughout the years, and that is the recommended serving size of a food. MyPlate illustrates the five food groups that are the building blocks for a healthy diet using a familiar image — a place setting for a meal. Before you eat, think about what goes on your plate or in your cup. How do your favorite meals fit into the MyPlate recommendations?
