The Federal Government unveiled its new Food Pyramid on Tuesday, April 19. It's called 'Mypyramid,' and consists of 12 new pyramid designs - made to fit individual nutritional needs and lifestyles.
The guide features colored food groups running vertically from the top of the pyramid to the base and for the first time, stresses the importance of exercise.
To help control portion sizes, the guide will now also use specific measurements instead of "serving" sizes. Experts say the changes are a good idea and that hopefully, it will help trim some fat off the population.
