Estonia uses a food pyramid which has physical activity and water at the base. The foods at the bottom of the pyramid (starches, fruits and vegetables) should make up the largest parts of any meal. Low-fat dairy products and other animal source foods are recommended to be eaten in moderation on a daily basis. On the higher levels of the pyramid are oil, butter and nuts; and on the apex products high in sugar (ice-cream, soft drinks, honey, biscuits, etc.).
