Today, First Lady Michelle Obama, Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack and Surgeon General Regina Benjamin unveiled the new icon: MyPlate, a plate divided into four wedges to represent the basic food groups â€” fruits, vegetables, grains and proteins. Next to the plate is a cup standing in for the dairy group. â€śWeâ€™re all bombarded with so many dietary messages that itâ€™s hard to find time to sort through all this information,â€ť Mrs. Obama said in a press conference. â€śWhen it comes to eating, whatâ€™s more simple than a plate? This is a quick, simple reminder for all of us to be more mindful of the foods that weâ€™re eating.â€ť
