Food Guide Pyramid
Here's 3 food pyramid charts and posters you can download and print.
The USDA Food Guide Pyramid prioritizes food groups to help ensure that people obtain the RDA’s (Recommended Dietary Allowances). This will help you control your portions sizes and foods to eat.
Even though nutrient and calorie needs vary from person to person, depending on age, gender, size and physical activity level, most adults should try to eat at least the lower number of servings from each food group. Many athletes (and most men) can have the middle to upper number of servings.
The Food Guide Pyramid is a nutrient recommendation plan that suggests a pattern of food choices that represents current nutritional needs. The current food guide include fruit servings from 2-4, and vegetable servings from 3-5 per day, and bread and cereal servings from 6-11 per day. Further, an important overall concept that is proposed by the Food Guide Pyramid is that portions of fat of fat sources should be limited (top of the pyramid), and portions of fruits, vegetables and grains (bottom of the pyramid) should be increased.
