The foundation layers contain the 3 plant-based food groups: Fruit, vegetables and legumes, and grains. These foods make up the largest part of the Pyramid because they should make up the largest part of what we eat. Plant foods contain a wide variety of nutrients like vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. They are also the main source of carbohydrates and fibre in our diet.

The middle layer includes the milk, yoghurt, cheese & alternatives which primarily provides us with calcium and protein, plus other vitamins and minerals. 

As well as the lean meat, poultry, fish, eggs, nuts, seeds, legumes food group, which is are our main sources of protein, as well as providing other nutrients, including iodine, iron, zinc, B12 vitamins and healthy fats.
