Walter, the Food Pyramid is so 10 minutes ago :-)

Almost a year ago the USDA guidelines changed to the MyPlate iconography.


In any event, the Nutrition activity UI strings will be available for
translation into your favorite language in Pootle as soon as all of
the Honey languages are refreshed from Pootle templates.  This is a
process that is taking longer and longer as we keep adding activities.
 Sort of a nice problem to have.
