    Is my protein (LOL - which is funny - protein can be found in ALL those food groups. *snort*) suppos eto always occupy 1/4 of my plate?
    What if I'm eating out of a bowl?

    And do I always have to drink my dairy or can I eat that?

    What was wrong with serving suggestions like they use to do?
    Those shapes are sized in proportion to the amounts received from lobbyiests.

    Does this include the nutritional research required?

    I seem to remember this same type of conversation with the Terrorist threat level. That was stupid, this new plate is stupid.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    I was paying attention to the way my eyes see it when I'm looking at it. "Dairy" is the last thing I see, it's off to the side, and it seems smaller. I think it may down-value the importance of dairy in a visual sense. Dairy is pretty damn important, especially if you happen to be a woman, and even more so if you ever want kids.
    Many cultures don't eat dairy at all. Calcium isn't just in dairy products.

    "teachers like myself"? do you mean "teachers like me"?

    I don't know if he's asking that or saying that my construction paper/plate lesson wouldn't have any research behind it.
