Australia uses a guide to healthy eating that visually represents in a plate the proportion of the five food groups for recommended consumption each day. The food groups included in the plate are: grain cereal foods; vegetables and legumes/beans; fruits; lean meats and poultry, fish, eggs, tofu, nuts and seeds; reduced fat dairy products and/or alternatives. Outside of the plate there is the advice to drink plenty of water, and the recommendation to use oils in small amounts. Alcohol and highly processed foods (high in sugar, fat and sodium) should be consumed only sometimes and in small amounts.
