I think I prefer the plate layout over the older versions (see below), and like how vegetables are taking a major role.
This plate layout is definitely easier to visualize than the food pyramid, which is what we were taught meant good nutrition back in the day.
According to wikipedia, the classic pyramid was updated in 2005, before being replaced by plate more recently.
I find it interesting that dairy continues to play an important role in government-certified nutrition (see milk glass in first picture). I love some cheese and have respect for dairy products, but I question dairy as a necessary component of a balanced diet.
