Food Pyramid- what is a food Pyramid chart

Food Pyramid

Food pyramid is meant for use by the general healthy population as a guide for the types of foods and its proportion to be included in the daily diet. In order to assist in selecting food items from each food group the food pyramid has been developed.

The Food Pyramid clearly indicates that we should consume food from each of the five food groups to ensure good health. This also tells us to include food items which are at the top of the food pyramid such as fats and sugar in less quantity as compared to cereals and pulses which are at the bottom of the pyramid. Use of food pyramid not only ensures good health but also helps in planning a balanced diet and facilitates selection of alternate foods.
