More than 6,000 Community Partners and 90 National Strategic Partners have committed to promote the recommendations in the 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans, according to the release.

MyPlate was developed as a result of a 2010 report of the White House Childhood Obesity Task Force, which challenged the USDA to use a new symbol that would be simpler and more direct than the Food Pyramid, according to the release.

In June, the Center for Nutrition Policy and Promotion plans to highlight the anniversary with blog postings on its website, daily Tweets on healthy eating and online resources for children.
