The Food Pyramid was created in Sweden in 1974 and it is a guide stating the entire healthy food intake that our body requires everyday. The Pyramid is divided into groups or sections and recommends the intake of each group of food. This food Pyramid is very important for everyone, as they need to know what food to eat everyday to help them grow and be healthy.
The food pyramid depicts all the different food groups that are essential for the human body. The Pyramid is divided into five food groups, each group suggesting the nutrition required for a human body. Each food group is represented by a coloured stripe, thin and bold. The thinner the stripe, the lesser the body needs of that food group.
