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.
Poland’s food guide is the ‘Pyramid of healthy nutrition’. The pyramid is divided into six levels representing six food groups. Cereals are found at the base; vegetables and tubers on the second level; fruits on the third level followed by milk and dairy products, meat, fish, eggs and beans. Oil is at the top of the pyramid. A beverage group (represented by water) and images of physical activity are placed outside of the pyramid.
Poland has also developed a pyramid for children and adolescents, almost identical to the one for the general population. The only difference is that there is an explicit recommendation to avoid table salt.
