Food pyramid and dietary guidelines

Experts recommendations on daily intakes for each food group

Every food we eat has a unique nutritional composition. Since different aliments have different nutritional values, we need to eat food from different groups to meet our daily nutritional needs. The Food Pyramid is an easy way to visualize the amount of food corresponding to each group that we should eat every day to stay healthy. Each country has its own nutritional pyramid, and it is difficult to create a universal one due to the differences in the type of food available in each region of the world.
