The Food Guide Pyramid

The Food Guide Pyramid illustrates the research based food guidance system developed by the USDA (U.S. Department of Agriculture) and supported by the HHS (U.S. Department of Health and Human Services).
It is a visual representation of the concepts of moderation and proportionality as well as variety. It goes beyond the basic four food groups to help you put the Dietary Guidelines into action.
