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 food guide used shows four food groups (cereals and cereal products; vegetables and fruits; animal source foods and beans; and fats, oils and sugar). The size of the various food group segments roughly reflects the volume that each group should contribute to the diet.
