I kinda like the plate image a little better than the pyramids. At least visually.
The pyramid always confused me as a child, because they claimed something like 6-11 servings of grains and breads...but they never said how much a serving was. So as a kid, I couldn't wrap my mind around how I was supposed to compare pasta to rolls and decide which was a serving.
And heaven help me if it was something like a lasagna where there was also meat, cheese and vegetables inside of pasta! How's a kid supposed to figure out values from that!
Oooh food pyramid memories.
