Geometry lovers are covered--but did it help you?
I know this is old news—the stab at creating a better federal health pyramid of how to eat.
Ancient Egypt is out metaphor-wise and Baby’s First Plate is in.

Did you go to the website for more info? Did you not hear someplace that it’s good to eat raw fruit and veggies and bad to eat the Fries of the French?
Yeah—that rumor has been going around.
