Full Summary: The Food Pyramid is old news.  Figure out what your healthiest plate looks like.  Hint: it includes lots of colors. Our dietitian will help you better understand what a makes a well rounded healthy meal during this tabling series. 

You’ve probably seen the colorful triangle containing a variety of foods displaying how many servings you need to eat each day. Perhaps you learned about it back in health class, saw it displayed on the cafeteria wall, or glanced at it on the back of your cereal box one morning. That familiar food pyramid (introduced in 1991) was supposed to be our nutrition survival guide in a one-size-fits-all world. But let's face it—many people found the pyramid to be confusing and felt that it didn't really help individuals know how to plan a healthy diet, one meal at a time. Our dietitian will help you better understand what a makes a well rounded healthy meal during this tabling series.
