The food pyramid is a visual tool used as a guide to help parents to provide
a healthy, balanced, and varied diet for their children and help them achieve
the recommended nutrient intake.2
A balanced diet contains a combination of food sources that will provide all
the needed nutrients for your child. Thus, the food pyramid includes food
from 5 main food groups: rice and cereal products, fruits and vegetables,
meat and legumes, milk and dairy products, and sources of healthy fats.
The bottom level is the food group to be consumed the most, whereas the
top level represents the food group to be consumed the least.
