Title: Introducing the New Food Guide Pyramid


1
Introducing the New Food Guide Pyramid
Created by Mrs. Strode Joe Harrison Carter
Elementary
2
What is the New Food Guide Pyramid?
The new symbol for the guide to the food groups
is known as MyPyramid. MyPyramid was developed
to remind people to make healthy choices and to
be physically active every day.

Lets take a good look at Mypyramid. What do we
notice?
4
Be Physically Active Every Day
The person climbing the stairs reminds us of the
importance of being active daily. Kids need at
least 60 minutes of physical activity on most
days!
5
Why are some colored stripes wider than others?
Some of the colored stripes are wider than
others to remind us that we need more of
certain food groups than others.
6
Every Color Every Day
The colors red, yellow, orange, green, purple,
and blue represent the five different food
groups plus oils. It is important to eat
servings from each group every day.
7
How can MyPyramid Help Me?
Following the food guidelines helps one establish
a healthy diet. A healthy diet and 60 minutes
of physcial activity daily can make you
healthier, feel better, and keep weight at an
appropriate level.
MyPyramid was redesigned because one size doesnt
fit all. MyPyramid helps you choose foods and
amounts that are right for you.
