A food pyramid or diet pyramid is a pyramid-shaped diagram representing the optimal number of servings to be eaten each day from each of the basic food groups. The first food pyramid was published in Sweden in 1974 and the food pyramid introduced by the United States Department of Agriculture in the year 1992 was called the “Food Guide Pyramid”.
