On April 19, 2005 a new symbol and interactive food guidance system ("food pyramid") was released by the USDA. MyPyramid replaces the Food Guide Pyramid. This new graphic accompanies the 2005 Dietary Guidelines for Americans and provides a visual aid to assist in improving diet and lifestyle.
The University of Florida/IFAS Department of Family, Youth and Community Sciences has created supplemental MyPyramid materials as part of the focus on Health and Nutrition for Florida Citizens. These materials have been divided into separate index pages for faster page load time and for your convenience.
