The Global Nutrition Policy Review 2016–2017 is the report of the second comprehensive analysis of nutrition-related policy environment, coordination mechanisms, available capacities and actions being taken in 176 Member States (91%) and one area which responded to the survey carried out between July 2016 and December 2017.
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.
