The food pyramid helps us to understand the different food groups and it tells us how much of each food group we should eat. At the bottom of the pyramid, there are things made from grains. Grains give us energy and we eat more of these foods. Fruit and vegetables are in the next level of the pyramid. They help our eyes and health. We should eat them regularly. On the next level, there are fish, meat, dairy products, lentils, beans etc which have protein. Protein and dairy make us strong. Fat and oil are at the top of the food pyramid and our body does not need very much of them. We should remember that when we have choices about food, we need to make good choices.
