Programme: Dietary guidelines of Paraguay.Dietary guidelines for children 2 years and younger.

Programme description

The food guide used by Paraguay is a pot divided into six food groups. The size of each food group segment reflects the volume the group should contribute to total daily diet. In addition, a colour code is used to indicate which foods should be eaten in higher or lesser quantities. The green colour represents foods that should be eaten in higher quantities and includes grains, tubers, fruits and vegetables. The yellow colour represents foods that should be eaten in moderation, such as milk and dairy products, meat, legumes and eggs. The red colour represents foods that should be eaten only in small quantities such as added sugar, honey, oils and fats.

Two additional recommendations are given outside of the pot: drink water and do physical activity.The food guide used by Paraguay is a pot divided into six food groups.
