Hey everyone, looks like nutrition is becoming a dominant topic. So I thought I would throw education into the mix. These are the standards taught to children and teens in the US Education System. First we have the food pyramid (the 20-year standard) and then we have the food plate (est. 2011) which replaced this system.




What are you thought about both of these? Are they accurate?

Also, what place, if at all, should nutrution play in the education system given the various inconsistencies among nutritionists i.e., no carb or high carb, no meat or paleo, or high fat or low fat.
