Food Plates, Pagodas and Pyramids around the world

Food Plates, Pagodas and Pyramids around the world

Health awareness in past decades has been increasing around the world. With increase in awareness Government of various countries around the world keep modifying their food guidelines and the symbol. To keep up with new findings in nutrition science these changes are essential. United States in recent years has changed its symbols from food pyramid to modified food pyramid and then now to Choose my plate. But, many countries still have the pyramid and also plates for advice. Americans now are used to the new MyPlate design — which is simple and similar to Spain, Australia and Britain’s. But in China, Poland, and elsewhere, there is more creativity. While most of the guidelines propose a similar ratio of proteins, grains, fruits, vegetables, and dairy to the U.S.’s MyPlate, some contain regionally specific advice.  Look at next few slides.
