MyPyramid replaces the Food Guide Pyramid introduced in 1992. MyPyramid is part of an overall food guidance system that emphasizes the need for a more individualized approach to improving diet and lifestyle. It incorporates recommendations from the 2005 Dietary Guidelines for Americans, released by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and U.S. Department of Health and Human Services in January 2005. The MyPyramid symbol represents the recommended proportion of foods from each food group and focuses on the importance of making smart food choices in every food group, every day. Physical activity is a new element in the symbol.
The new food guidance system utilizes interactive technology found on http://mypyramid.gov/. The interactive activities make it easy for individuals to enter their age, gender and physical activity level to obtain a more personalized recommendation on their daily calorie level based on the 2005 Dietary Guidelines for Americans. The Web site features MyPyramid Plan, MyPryamid Tracker and Inside MyPyramid, plus tips, resources and a worksheet.
A child-friendly version of MyPyramid for teachers and children, MyPyramid for Kids, has been developed for children six to 11 years old More information can be found at http://mypyramid.gov/kids/index.html.
