Big fail, USDA, with the MyPlate update to what you are recommending America eats. Way to continue promoting the cash crops that only benefit the government. The recommendations like "Enjoy your food, but eat less," won't help anyone stay healthy, especially when you are recommending things like "Switch to fat-free or low-fat (1%) milk," and "Make at least half your grains whole grains." Sugar and poison. Good job.

For anyone concerned with their health, or their weight, I suggest you make your plate look something like this:

This doesn't even give the whole picture of what is healthy to eat, but it's a far cry better than the USDA plate.
