Food Guide Pyramid

The Food Guide Pyramid, which was released by the USDA in 1992, was replaced on April 19, 2005, by MyPyramid.

The original Food Guide Pyramid, like MyPyramid, was a widely recognized nutrition education tool that translated nutritional recommendations into the kinds and amounts of food to eat each day.

Several Food Guide Pyramid publications are provided here for historical reference. The information and guidance they contain is no longer current. (All files are PDFs unless otherwise noted.)

More Pyramids can be found at the USDA Food and Nutrition Information Center.
