Food Guide Pyramids

They allow us to know What, How, and When to eat. They supplement information from the recommended dietary allowances (RDA; see Guidlines) that have been found to be sufficient to maintain proper health of most people (% daily values). Food guide pyramids contain information about proportions of food groups recommended for a healthy person.
