In 1974, the first pyramid was introduced to the public, in Sweden, with the motto: ‘Good wholesome food at reasonable prices’.
Today, every country has its own version of the food pyramid. In China, the food pagoda pays special attention to vegetables as sources of protein. In France, the traditional pyramid is replaced by a 9-step staircase that includes the recommended frequency for each food.
