Israel uses a pyramid to represent the messages of its guidelines. At the base of the pyramid there is water; followed by five food groups: grains; vegetables; fruits; foods rich in protein (meat, eggs and dairy products); fats and oils; and sweets; and snacks and soft drinks. The foods at the base of the pyramid should be consumed in large amounts on a daily basis. As one goes up towards the vertex of the pyramid, the recommended daily amount decreases. Consumption of foods at the top should be minimized. Images around the pyramid represent physical activity.
