The United States Agriculture Department now has 12 food pyramids. The U.S.D.A. has taken advantage of the Internet to make different guidelines for different people.

The pyramids still have the same food groups, but those groups are now displayed as vertical lines. The guidelines also offer the best choices with each food group.

Another major change is the staircase that runs alongside the pyramids. They represent the importance for exercise in order to stay healthy or get in shape.
