Food Pyramid Facts and the USDA My Plate

The USDA changed from the food pyramid to my plate in 2011. The changes were made to help inspire the public lead people to make good eating choices. As you can see in the my plate graphic in the video, the plate is color coded to represent proper portions of each food group. Seafood products remain part of the proteins, and four to six ounces per day is recommended. The USA recommends that seafood is a main protein source at least twice a week. Seafood like salmon is rich in Omega 3 fatty acids, and is a super food. Morey’s offer several salmon options that are ready to cook.
