Consistent with the 2005 Dietary Guidelines for Americans and the USDA's MyPyramid, LunchByte Systems, Inc.'s latest solutions will help connect families with good nutrition and physical activity at home on their very own computers. By Partnering with MyPyramid, the company is joining the USDA's efforts to help families live healthier lives.
