 Food Pyramids

Good nutritional practices involve maintaining a well-balanced diet that includes whole grains, protein, dairy, vegetables, fruit and some fats. Americans are accustomed to seeing the traditional Food and Drug Administration pyramid on the box of every cereal box and FDA-approved publication. While the American food guide pyramid is by all means healthy and comprehensive, we thought it would be fun to share food guide pyramids reflecting the histories of many other ethnic beginnings, cultures and beliefs.


Menu Planning
