Create a Vegan-Friendly Food Pyramid
This petition made change with 3,241 supporters!
USDA is working on a revision of the food pyramid, which is used as a guideline for how people should ideally eat and to educate people about nutrition. However, it continues to emphasize meat and dairy products without providing alternatives for those who choose a plant-based diet for health or ethical reasons.
In a recent report, the USDA itself called for a shift toward a more plant-based diet, however, the well-publicized food pyramid continues to pander to the interests of animal agriculture.
Urge the USDA to incorporate a list of healthy alternatives to animal-based foods in their 2010 food pyramid.
