Healthy Diet for Kids: Food Pyramid

Have you ever heard of the Food Pyramid? No, its not a giant pile of
food in Egypt! The Food Pyramid is a clever chart to show the five groups
of foods that have all the nutrients that keep your body healthy and make
you grow. It includes the different foods from all five groups and how much
of each type of food you should eat.

The foods that make up the widest part of the pyramids basebreads,
cereals, rice and pastashould be the biggest part of your diet, followed by
several servings of fresh fruits and vegetables every day. And as you
climb up the pyramid you get to dairy products (milk, cheese, yogurt)
and meat, fish, beans, nuts and eggs. And finally, fats, oils, and sweets are
at the very top of the pyramidwhich means that you should eat very little
of these foods!

Remember that its very important to eat these good foods, and also
exercise regularly. And one of the most important meals of the day is
breakfast! If you eat a healthy breakfast before leaving for school youre
sure to have better grades, pay more attention at school, and stay
healthier than those kids who dont eat breakfast. Learn more about the
Food Guide Pyramid for Kids or the Food Pyramid for Adults.
