More balance is better than the original food pyramid. Obviously we on PaleoHacks are going to disagree with the ratios (and as mentioned by Vrimj, the deletion of fat), but the egalitarian pie shape doesn't put grains in a position of importance anymore, which is an improvement over all in my mind.
Also, this looks way less informative than the food pyramid used to. The less information the government gives on nutrition, the better.
Edit: Was reading through the informational aspect of the website. The dairy section is particularly atrocious:
All fluid milk products and many foods made from milk are considered part of this food group. Most Dairy Group choices should be fat-free or low-fat. Foods made from milk that retain their calcium content are part of the group. Foods made from milk that have little to no calcium, such as cream cheese, cream, and butter, are not. Calcium-fortified soymilk (soy beverage) is also part of the Dairy Group.
Since when is soymilk a dairy product?
