The Department of Agriculture is planning to replace the pyramid with a plate icon.

The new image is expected to be unveiled Thursday. It is meant to help remind Americans to make healthy food choices.

The plate image will be divided into sections to show how much of different types of foods we should be eating.

The original version of the food pyramid was criticized for being too confusing.
