Diabetes food pyramid

Diabetes food pyramid


The Diabetes Food Pyramid divides food into six groups, which vary in size to show relative amounts of servings for each group.

This pyramid differs from the Food Guide Pyramid released by the USDA. In the Diabetes Food Pyramid, the groups are based on protein content and carbohydrates instead of their food classification.
