Venezuela’s food guide is the ‘food spinning top’, which is divided into five food groups: cereals and tubers at the top, followed by vegetables, fruits, animal-source foods, and fats and sugars. The string is a line of water where a family engages in physical activity.
Venezuela has also developed a food guide for its indigenous population. The main difference can be found in the animal-source foods group, which includes wild animals such as crocodiles. The string of water represents a river where an indigenous person paddles down in a kayak and a second one hunts.
