Currently the USDA food MyPyramid promotes:

  • Grain consumption, recommending that at least half of grains be whole grains (27%)
  • Vegetables, emphasizing dark green vegetables, orange vegetables, and dry beans and peas (23%)
  • Milk, a category that includes fluid milk and many other milk-based products (23%)
  • Fruits, emphasizing variety and deemphasizing fruit juices (15%)
  • Meat and beans, emphasizing low-fat and lean meats such as fish as well as more beans, peas, nuts, and seeds (10%)
  • Oils, recommending fish, nut, and vegetables sources (2%)
