PROVIDENCE, R.I. Johnson and Wales University culinary students are getting a visit today from a top official at the Department of Agriculture.

Deputy Under Secretary Kate Coler is meeting with students to discuss the new eating guides recently announced by the department.

The government has tossed its one-size-fits-all food pyramid and replaced it with 12 food pyramids to guide people to healthy eating.

The new guides are each geared to different lifestyles and nutritional needs.

Officials hope the changes will renew interest in healthy habits.

Johnson and Wales students will share with Coler recipes that are based on the guidelines.
