It is MyPlate now!: The dietary guidelines were the older recommendation. This has =now been replaced by my plate(usda nutritional guidelines). This contains adequate amounts of proteins, starches, grains, vegetables, fruits and low fat dairy. This is healthier food guideline than the food pyramid was!
