The USDA’s MyPlate Nutrition Guide celebrates its third birthday!
MyPlate, the USDA’S nutrition guide depicting a place setting with a plate and glass divided into five food groups, celebrates its third birthday on June 2. MyPlate replaced the 19 year-run of the USDA’s food pyramid diagrams. Walnuts are represented in the MyPlate program as a protein food group with a suggested daily intake of 1 ounce for 4 grams of protein. Grab your ounce of walnuts and help us bid MyPlate a happy (and healthy) birthday!
