The Food Guide Pyramid for Daily Food Choices - 14164_157
This pyramid (fig. 7-1) is a visual companion to the Dietary Guidelines for Americans. The new graphic conveys the three essential elements of a healthy diet: proportion, moderation, and variety. l l l Proportion   is  the  relative  amount  of  food  to choose  from  each  major  food  group. Moderation   is  eating  fats,  oils,  and  sugars sparingly. Variety  emphasizes  the  importance  of  eating  a selection  of  different  foods  from  each  of  the major food groups every day. Table 7-2 illustrates the range of caloric intake and servings  needed  from  each  major  food  group  based  on activity  level. NOTE:  The   minimum   suggested servings on the pyramid are the minimum number of servings needed each day to stay healthy, even when trying to lose weight. The food pyramid graphically communicates the message of the Dietary Guidelines for Americans— diets   should   be   built   upon   a   base   of   complex carbohydrates  and  less  fat.  The  placement  of  the  food groups starting at the base of the pyramid conveys the current recommendations. These recommendations are as follows: eat more grains, vegetables, and fruits; eat moderate amounts of lean meats and dairy foods; and use sweets, fats, and oils sparingly. The food guide pyramid graphic (fig. 7-1) shows that all food groups are important to the diet. Grain, Cereal, Rice and Pasta Group The  food  pyramid  emphasizes  whole  grain  and cereal foods as the basis of a nutritious diet. Wheat, corn, oats, and other grains have very little fat and are cholesterol   free. These   foods   provide   complex carbohydrates—an   important   source   of   energy, especially  in  low-fat  diets.  They  also  provide  fiber. A person needs 6 to 11 servings from this group daily, depending on their activity level. You should offer whole  grain  and  enriched  or  fortified  products,  but  be sure to include some whole grain bread or cereals. WHAT IS A SERVING?—  It  includes  all  products made with whole grain or enriched flour or meal such as  bread,  biscuits,  muffins,  waffles,  pancakes,  cooked  or ready-to-eat cereals, cornmeal, flour, grits, macaroni and  spaghetti,  noodles,  rice,  rolled  oats,  and  barley. The  following  are  some  examples  of  a  typical serving from the grain group: . 1 slice of bread .  1/2  cup  of  cooked  cereal,  cornmeal,  grits, macaroni,  noodles,  rice  or  spaghetti Table 7-2.—Range of Caloric Intake and Servings Needed Based on Activity Level 7-6
