Food pyramids offer us a simple, easy-to-follow guide to healthy eating.

Nowadays, with the growing numbers of overweight and obese adults and children, the importance of healthy eating is vital.

Adults and kids have their own food pyramids telling that we should eat a variety of food items from all the food groups. A healthy meal according to the food pyramid should contain lean meat, beans, nuts, fish, milk, dairy products, fruits, grains, vegetables and some fats.

The food pyramid helps us to receive all the nutrients growing children as well as adults need each day from the five food groups.
