Internet News Article | Reuters.com: "The U.S. Agriculture Department updated its well-known Food Guide Pyramid with a triangular symbol that emphasizes exercise and urges consumers to use an Internet site to design a personalized plan for healthy eating.
But it kept the basic shape of the food pyramid, which was developed in 1992 and criticized by many health experts for contributing to obesity by pushing foods high in carbohydrates.
Some health experts immediately criticized the new symbol, called MyPyramid, for placing responsibility for a slimmer America on consumers and not food companies. They also said it was more confusing and would not help poor Americans who do not have a computer. "
