Bonnie Minsky on MyPlate: One Glaring Omission

In general, MyPlate is a vast improvement from MyPyramid. There is, however, one glaring omission: healthy fats. One cannot exist optimally without healthy fats. In a perfect world, they should have cut down on the portion of grains and added a section for healthy oils. This was a huge misstep. Hopefully, they will put this in the next version.

That said, they have come a long way and the First Lady and Secretary Vilsack should be commended.
