nutritional practices involve maintaining a well-balanced diet that
includes whole grains, protein, dairy, vegetables, fruit and some fats.

Americans are accustomed to seeing the traditional Food and Drug
Administration pyramid on the box of every cereal box and FDA-approved

healthy and comprehensive, we thought it would be fun to share food
guide pyramids reflecting the histories of many other ethnic
beginnings, cultures and beliefs.
