Food Tetrahedron?

Federal officials are looking to "perk up" the now 12-year-old food guide pyramid. Although over 80% of Americans recognize the pyramid, 66% are overweight, hence the decision by federal authorities to brainstorm a "catchy slogan" and review the overall design of the Food Guide Pyramid program. The USDA will be holding a public meeting on August 19, 2004 at the Jefferson Auditorium, USDASouth Building, 1400 Independence Avenue SW, but those wishing to attend must RSVP by email to respond at cnpp.usda.gov by 5pm August 12.
