I will be discussing Let’s Ask Marion with Clark Wolf as part of the Fales Library Critical Topics Series at 5:00 p.m., via Zoom. It’s free but registration is required—here.
Belgium’s new food pyramid
Belgium has produced a new food guide “pyramid,” upside down. Its advice:
- Drink water
- Eat more fruits, vegetables, and grains
- Eat less dairy and meat, particularly those high in fat
- Eat a lot less junk food, sugary drinks, and alcohol
Nothing new here, really, except for making the advice so graphically clear.
As Quartz puts it, “the new food pyramid in Belgium sticks meat next to candy and pizza.”
USDA: take note.
