Implementation details : 

The food-based dietary guidelines are represented by the Wheel of Five (Dutch: Schijf van Vijf). The wheel is divided into four food groups and one beverage group. Fruits and vegetables and carbohydrate sources are shown at the top and cover more than half of the disk. Animal source foods, fats and oils comprise a much smaller part. Water and other beverages such as tea, coffee and milk complete the wheel.
