Seychelles’ food guide is a disc displaying five food groups. The size of each segment reflects the proportion each group should contribute to a healthy diet. According to the food guide, fruits and vegetables, and the rice, bread, cereals, pasta and tuber food groups should make up the bulk of the daily diet. Moderate amounts of fish, meat, eggs, fish/meat alternatives and milk products are to be eaten regularly. Fat and sugar rich products are to be eaten in small amounts. In addition, the food guide recommends drinking 8 glasses of water a day.
