A Listing of Ethnic, Cultural and Special Food Pyramids
Various ethnicities and cultures eat a much different diet and cuisine than we do here in the US. Food availability, cultural beliefs, tradition and genetics lead to varying nutritional needs and one food guide pyramid cannot accurately represent everyone’s diet guidelines.
Many countries around the world have developed their own food guidelines in various forms similar to the US food pyramid. There are also pyramids and food guidelines for special groups such as children and the elderly. Activity pyramids represent the type and amount of physical activity needed to stay healthy. You’ll find all of these areas covered here.
