Implementation details : 

China uses the ‘Food Guide Pagoda’, which is divided into five levels of recommended consumption corresponding to the five Chinese food groups. Cereals (in the form of rice, corn, bread, noodles and crackers) and tubers make up the base of the pagoda and, together with vegetables and fruits (on the second level), should make up the majority of any meal. Meat, poultry, fish and shrimps, and eggs (on the third level) should be eaten regularly in small quantities. A recommendation to eat milk, dairy products, beans and bean products is included in the fourth level. Fat, oil and salt, placed on the roof of the pagoda, should be eaten in moderation. Recommendations to drink plenty of water and to do physical activity are also included in the food guide.
