The graphical representation of the guidelines is a round traditional house with a thatch roof. Five food groups are displayed as wall layers in order of largest to smallest amounts: cereals/tubers; plant/animal-protein foods; vegetables; fruits; and dairy products (or high-Ca foods as substitutes). At the entrance there is a bottle of water, symbol of Beninese hospitality and a reminder that plenty of water should be drank throughout the day.
