            According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, “The prevalence of obesity was 39.8% and affected about 93.3 million US adults in 2015~2016.” (“Adult Obesity Facts”, 2018) Obesity in America has become a great concern for adults as well as children.  The USDA has published numerous dietary guidelines over the years.  My Plate is the latest dietary guideline published by the USDA.  My Plate shows a graph of a dinner plate divided into four equal parts.  Alongside the for equal parts of the plate is a drinking glass.  Each equal section represents for different food groups vegetable, fruits, grains, protein, and the drinking glass represents dairy.
            In my opinion, My Plate is basic.  It does not go into detail what type of foods from each group are the healthier choices when choosing food from each group.  I do not think My Plate dietary guidelines would be useful in any population.  For example, consumers may feel because the protein section is not specific on what type of protein is healthy; they may believe eating hamburgers may be healthy because hamburgers fall under protein.  The Healthy Eating Plate created by the Harvard School of Public Health and Harvard School of Medicine, on the other hand, is very detailed. The Healthy Eating Plate encourages consumers to eat healthy proteins like fish, poultry beans, and nuts.  The Healthy Eating Plate also urges consumers to stay active.  My Plate does not mention anything about activity.
            It great to have healthy eating guidelines, but to be effective; these guidelines should provide information on what are the best types of food for each section should be consumed.
