I cannot find a reference to the 2 million cost associated with this, nor what that bought. Maybe the OP could provide those so people actually had enough information.
So you don't know what the 2 million bought, but you think it is too much? You do not understand keeping research current with new knowledge. You are throwing a fit over something that accounted for about .01 % of the US budget, assuming it was paid for by the US government and not private donations(do you actually know this, or are you assuming again?).
Do you have any other painfully trivial bitches to make?
You know - slightly off subject - but I have a serious problem taking any such advise from soemone who doesn't look like they're practiciing what they preach.
I see Mrs Obama getting a little thick and don't imagine she remotely follows the food pyramid. In the same way I don't think that a aesthetician with acne knows a single thing about proper skin care. Or like the overweight gym instructor at my kid's elementary school.
maybe I'm snide

This is a stupid complaint. Food pyramid has been around since 92 when Bush HW was president and the gov has been helping with dietary guidelines for a long time. This is not a waste of money considering the last pyramid had no information on it other than different colors. Now people know. One thing I notice people think protein protein protein but for someone who is not actively doing resistance training protein is recommended only 10-12 percent of calories a day. Fats should be more abundant than protein actually in most people

When I went to school, it was the 4 basic food groups, no pyramid.
