QUESTIONS 8 THROUGH 11QUESTIONS 8 THROUGH 11
This is a chart of the Food Pyramid. The Food Pyramid serves as a basic guide to making healthy food choices. If you take a look at the guide you can easily see which food groups you should be eating. According to the pyramid, most of your daily food should consist of breads, rice, and cereals. These are the foods in the bottom level of the pyramid. Almost equal to these, but not quite as much, should be vegetables every day. Serving of meat, fish, eggs, and dairy foods, which include milk and cheese, should be much smaller. Sugars should be the smaillest portion of all. Of course, your daily nutritional needs will vary according to your activity level and life style. You do not have to follow the Food Pyramid, but it is a good way to be sure you will get the healthiest benefits from your daily food. If you keep a copy of the pyramid stuck to the door of your refrigerator, it will remind you to plan your daily meals wisely every time you go into the kitchen.
