  7. 7. Why the Change?  Many blamed the old pyramid for childhood obesity.  Many people misunderstood the range in what to eat and how much they should consume or couldn’t understand it.  The new pyramid is more interactive.  No more servings, just recommendations (according to a 2,000 calorie diet) along with better eating and exercise habits.

  13. 13. Meat & Beans  Dry beans and peas are the mature forms of legumes such as kidney beans, pinto beans, lima beans, black-eyed peas, and lentils. These foods are excellent sources of plant protein, and also provide other nutrients such as iron and zinc. They are similar to meats, poultry, and fish in their contribution of these nutrients. Many people consider dry beans and peas as vegetarian alternatives for meat. However, they are also excellent sources of dietary fiber and nutrients such as folate that are low in diets of many Americans. These nutrients are found in plant foods like vegetables.  Because of their high nutrient content, consuming dry beans and peas is recommended for everyone, including people who also eat meat, poultry, and fish regularly. The Food Guide includes dry beans and peas as a subgroup of the vegetable group, and encourages their frequent consumption—several cups a week—as a vegetable selection. But the Guide also indicates that dry beans and peas may be counted as part of the “meat, poultry, fish, dry beans, eggs, and nuts group.”
  14. 14. Oils  Oils are fats that are liquid at room temperature, like the vegetable oils used in cooking. Oils come from many different plants and from fish. Some common oils are: Some oils are used mainly as flavorings, such as walnut oil and •canola oil sesame oil. A number of foods are naturally high in oils, like: •corn oil •cottonseed oil •nuts •olive oil •olives •safflower oil •some fish •soybean oil •avocados •sunflower oil Solid fats are fats that are solid at room temperature, like butter and shortening. Solid fats come from many animal foods and can be made from vegetable oils through a process called hydrogenation. Some common solid fats are: •butter •beef fat (tallow, suet) •chicken fat •pork fat (lard) •stick margarine •shortening
