Leave it to the French to be different. This is also one of the few charts that encourages physical activity. Recommended daily servings are above the food in each step, and the magnifying glass on the side displays miniature small servings of sweets, salt, oil, and sodas. The French have a staircase with nine stairs/rules.
- The foods you should eat the least of are at the bottom of the stairs, and those you can eat the most of are at the top of the stairs.
- There is also a tap with running water at the top of the stairs to emphasize hydration.
- There’s also an accompanying magnifying glass which shows you which foods you should be eating very little of (sugars, processed foods, etc.).
- Do not forget the happy family running to the top of the stairs: exercise is the key to healthy diets.
- The guidelines also recommend eating starchy foods depending on your appetite, so eat a lot when you’re hungry and stop when you aren’t… that’s the hallmark of French eating.
