Food pyramid showing the recommended proportions of food types for a healthy, balanced diet. The largest part of the diet should be carbohydrates from bread, cereal, rice and pasta (pyramid base), with 6-11 servings daily. The next layer of the pyramid is fruit and vegetables, with a combined amount of 6-9 servings daily. These provide many essential vitamins and minerals. The next layer is lean meat, beans, eggs and nuts (protein content), and milk, yoghurt and cheese (calcium and protein content), both groups requiring moderation (2-3 servings daily). Finally at the top of the pyramid are fats and oils, and sweets (added sugar), which should be used sparingly (0-3 servings daily).
