The new MiPlato and MyPlate icons emphasize the fruit, vegetable, grains, protein and dairy food groups. The announcement is part of the Obama Administrationâs celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month, which this year carries the theme âRenewing the American Dream,â and this week focuses on the communityâs well being. The tips are part of a multi-year effort to raise awareness and educate consumers of every age on the importance of healthier eating and physical activity. USDA Photo by Bob Nichols.
