The Food Pyramid
The Food Pyramid is designed to make healthy eating easier. Healthy eating is about getting the correct amount of nutrients – protein, fat, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals you need to maintain good health. Do you follow a healthy diet?
So in a nutshell, healthy eating involves:
- plenty of vegetables, salad and fruit
- a serving of wholemeal cereals and breads, potatoes, pasta and rice at every meal – go for wholegrain varieties wherever possible
- some milk, yoghurt and cheese
- some meat, poultry, fish, eggs, beans and nuts
- a very small amount of fats, spreads and oils
- and a very small amount or no foods and drinks high in fat, sugar and salt
