“Health is something
we do for ourselves,
not something
that is done to us;
a journey rather than
a destination;
a dynamic, holistic,
and purposeful
way of living.”

Balance calorie intake.
• Get your quota of nutrients first, within your recommended calorie
• Spend your calories on nutritious foods first, then spend any extra
calories - up to your recommended daily allowance - on the less
nutritious foods.
• Take in more calories from nutrient dense foods and beverages and
fewer calories from these foods:
Saturated fats
Trans fats
Added sugars

A healthful diet can reduce the risk of many
diseases that may cause premature death, such
as heart disease, cancer, stroke and diabetes.
Look at the meals you ate today
and yesterday…
How do they fit into the Food Pyramid?
Lets Review our Food Groups
Make half your grains whole.
• Eat at least 3 oz. of whole-grain cereals,
breads, crackers, rice, or pasta every day.
• 1 oz. is about 1 slice of bread, about 1 cup
of breakfast cereal, or ½ cup of cooked
rice, cereal, or pasta.
Vary your veggies.
• Eat more dark green veggies like broccoli,
spinach, and other dark leafy greens.
• Eat more orange vegetables like carrots
and sweet potatoes.
• Eat more dry beans and peas like pinto
beans, kidney beans, and lentils.
Focus on fruits.
• Eat a variety of fruit.
• Chose fresh, frozen, canned, or dried fruit.
• Go easy on fruit juices.
Get your calcium-rich foods.
• Go low-fat or fat-free when you choose
milk, yogurt, and other milk products.
• If you don’t or can’t consume milk, choose
lactose-free products or other calcium
sources such as fortified foods and
Meat & Beans
Go lean with proteins.
• Choose low-fat or lean meats and poultry.
• Bake it, broil it, or grill it.
• Vary your protein routine – choose more
fish, beans, peas, nuts, and seeds.
Food Guide Pyramid
• The largest amount of the foods in a healthful diet should
come from the largest slices of the pyramid, which
includes the grains group and the fruits and vegetable
• As you move across the pyramid, the recommended
daily servings increase or decrease based on the size of
the pyramid slice.
• Foods from the group represented by smallest pyramid
slice should be eaten sparingly, as they don't contain
much nutrient value. Eating too many foods from this
group may increase risk for certain types of diseases.
Discuss why the U.S. Dietary Guidelines and the
Food Guide Pyramid
are valid sources of information about healthful eating.
• The Dietary Guidelines for Americans were created in 1980 to help
Americans understand how to choose diets that promote good

scientific and medical research. The latest revision was in 2005.
• The Food Guide Pyramid was created to help people understand
what to eat each day in order to meet Dietary Guidelines.

foods should be eaten in order to obtain all of the nutrients the body
