Food Prices Database, 2003-04
The Center for Nutrition Policy and Promotion (CNPP) Food Prices Database presents the cost of these consumed foods for 2003-04. It shows the actual cost of an apple consumed, the cost of a glass of juice drunk, the cost of lasagna eaten, etc. For example, did you know that when you purchase a whole chicken and only consume the meat, your price per pound eaten is actually twice the price per pound purchased? This is because the weight of the skin and bones is about half of the whole chicken purchased. The information in this database should be of interest to nutrition educators and economists who wish to compare relative prices of different foods as consumed, rather than the purchase price.
Backgrounder for Revision of the Food Guidance System
USDA’s current food guidance system that includes the Food Guide Pyramid is being reassessed. The overall purpose of the reassessment is to ensure that the food guidance system reflects the latest nutritional science and to improve the educational tools that assist consumers in making healthier food choices. USDA expects to release the new food guidance system in early 2005.
