The “their” refers to the USDA, and the “his” to Walter Willett, Professor of Epidemiology and Nutrition at the Harvard School of Public Health. Nutrition and dietary guidelines hit the airwaves today on Radio Boston.

Co-hosts Meghna Chakrabarti and Anthony Brooks will speak with Willett about the recommendations made in his Healthy Eating Plate, in contradistinction to the USDA’s MyPlate with its more laconic recommendations  — recommendations influenced by food industry lobbyists. So argues Willett.

Chef Jody Adams of Rialto, and now Trade, will be live in the studio to suggest how to practically apply the plate’s guidelines in our daily eating lives. Listen in.
