The USDA has replaced our food pyramid with this plate icon that urges Americans to eat a more plant-based diet. More than 1/3 of children and 2/3 of adults in America are obese or overweight. “The goal of my plate is to simplify nutritional information”, said Obama. Obama has led a national campaign for healthier diets and more physical exercise, called Let’s Move. The purpose of Let’s Move is to reduce childhood obesity in the United States within a generation.
