A simple food pyramid to encourage good nutrition.
Print out this Food Pyramid in A3 or larger.
Display it in your classroom and refer to it when discussing nutrition and healthy eating.
This poster pack includes both the 2015 and 2007 guidelines so students have the opportunity to discuss recent changes in nutrition guidelines.
You may like to discuss the following changes:
- The top layer refers to healthy fats only – items like cakes and biscuits have been removed. Students may also like to discuss added sugar and why foods like cakes and lollies are not a part of the healthy food pyramid.
- Legumes and pulses have been added to the vegetables and fruits layer. Students may wish to discuss what these food are.
- Grains have moved from the bottom layer of the pyramid to the middle.
- Vegetables take up a larger portion of the foundation than fruits. This aligns more with the ‘ go for 2 and 5’ recommendations
Updated: 2 July 2015 – now complies with Nutrition Australia’s 2015 recommendations.
