Diabetic Food Pyramid Figure
The Diabetes Food Guide Pyramid is a tool that shows how much you should eat each day from each food group for a healthy diet. The Diabetes Food Guide Pyramid differs from the old USDA Food Guide Pyramid and from USDA’s new MyPyramid.
Until MyPyra- mid is modified for use by people with diabetes, the Diabetes Food Guide Pyramid is the best food guide for people with diabe- tes. The Diabetes Food Guide Pyramid places starchy vegetables such as peas, corn, potatoes, sweet potatoes, winter squash, and beans at the bottom of the pyramid, with grains.
The UK now have a round image, rather than a pyramid, but it’s still based on OLD nutrition data with the inclusion of ample carbohydrates. Base meals on potatoes, bread, rice, pasta or other starchy carbohydrates. Choose wholegrain where possible
