Food Pyramid Lunch Box: Cool or Not?

I'm definitely psyched that the food pyramid I learned about in elementary school was redesigned, but it looks like some people are still into the old horizontal stripes model — hence this Nutritional Pyramid Lunch Box. It's designed to help people make healthier choices when it comes to figuring out how to choose the correct portions of grains, veggies, and protein.

I'm actually surprised no one has thought of this before, but looking at the portions I think I might want more fruits and veggies than rice. Unfortunately, this lunch box is just in the early stages of production and not yet available for sale. I'm curious to know what you think . . .

cute but I wouldn't be having so fewer vegies in a meal...

It's a good start, but I definitely think there should be more veggies/fruit in this, and less carb. I also think the carb should at least be a whole grain, wild rice, quinoa, something like that...

so cuuute . I have a similar one (for people with DM that helps control portions) but this one is way cuter.

Wait... I thought the food pyramid had been scrapped after it came out that it was bread companies that designed it - as in, grains shouldn't be on the bottom at all. How is this image still being marketed?

I disagree on the subject of the proportions of a pyramid as an actual science. I think this neat & "cute". I don't think this is easier to store than Ziploc thingy however.

Very cute... I want one! I agree with sundaygreen though. I would definitely use it upside down.

Well my food pyramid would be upside down. More veggies at the bottom, moderate protein in the middle and definitely all grains at the very top (the least amount).

Good idea, but it's not for me. My diet is already portion-controlled (by volume, not mass). Also, those sections don't work for me. My diet is more vegetable and fruit heavy, with moderate servings of protein, dairy, and complex carbs.

I guess it's a good idea in theory, but it really isn't all that practical for the typical boxed luncher. I already count calories and am very good at portion control, but if it helps others, great! I think I'll stick with my nutrition facts calculations.

The food pyramid isn't designed to be a volumetric guide to how much of a certain food we should be eating. Its just a diagram.. The plate with 1/2 veggies, 1/4 grain, 1/4 protein makes more sense for this purpose.

Nice idea. The problem with this is that the macronutrient profiles of foods vary from food to food. Everything doesn't fit into a nice little space. Kudos to the entrepreneur who came up with this however.

But what if one thing is supposed to be heated and the rest cold? The different compartments should be removable for microwaving. =/

def. cool, but way too much rice there. it would need to be reworked into better divided sections. i hate when my food mixes, so maybe even having more dividers would be a nice touch
