The Food Guide Pyramid in your daily life.
Transcript of The Food Guide Pyramid in your daily life.
to this online lesson!
Today we will study a topic which will be very useful in our daily lives.
The Food Guide Pyramid emphasizes foods from the five major food groups shown in the three lower sections of the Pyramid.
Each of these food groups provides some, but not all, of the nutrients you need.
Foods in one group can’t replace those in another.
No one food group is more important than another – for good health, you need them all.
The small tip of the Pyramid shows fats , oils , and sweets . These are foods such as salad dressings and oils, cream , butter, margarine , sugars , soft drinks , candies , and sweet desserts . These foods provide calories and little else nutritionally. Most people should use them sparingly.
Meat, Poultry and Eggs
Oils & Condiments
On the Food Guide Pyramid are two groups of foods that come mostly from animals: milk , yogurt , and cheese ; and meat , poultry , fish , dry beans , eggs , and nuts . These foods are important for protein, calcium, iron, and zinc.
This level includes vegetables and fruits . Most people need to eat more of these foods for the vitamins, minerals, and fiber they supply.
And then we have breads , cereals , rice , and pasta — all foods from grains. You need the most servings of these foods each day.
Based on what we have just learned, how would you decide your menu for tomorrow? Start with breakfast, lunch and then dinner. Let's see an example to help you.
I was very pleased being with you during this session.

What made you decide the foods you chose for your menu.
What are the foods that you cannot forget in your planning.
What are the foods you should not include.
There are five main food groups that we need to eat food from every day to stay healthy. Food is the fuel for our body and we need the fuel for energy, to help our body grow and repair itself, and to keep warm.
Decide what changes you can make for a healthier diet.
