Food Pyramid Information

From the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the "MyPyramid for Kids" slogan for children is “Eat Right. Exercise. Have Fun”.  The key messages of "MyPyramid for Kids" are:

  • Be physically active every day – The child climbing the steps reminds children that physical activity should be done every day.

  • Choose healthier foods from each group – Every food group has foods that you should eat more often than others.

  • Eat more of some food groups than others – The different size stripes suggest how much food you should choose from each group.

  • Eat foods from every food group every day – The different colors of the pyramid represent the five different food groups plus oils.

  • Make the right choices for you – gives everyone in the family personal ideas on how to eat better and exercise more.

  • Take it one step at a time – Start with one new, good thing a day, and continue to add another new one every day.
