A Healthy Diet
        (Central Health Education Unit, Department of Health)
The Food Guide Pyramid divides food into five major food groups : grains, vegetables, fruits, milk and meat. Each of these food groups provides some but not all of the nutrients and energy you need. For good and proper growth, you need to eat a variety of different foods every day. The foods you take every day should include choices from all five major food groups. When you have a balanced diet over time, you will develop good eating habits and help you maintain a healthy weight.
