American consumers have another educational tool to help them learn about the importance of a balanced diet to a healthy lifestyle. The Food Guide Pyramid…Basic Maintenance For Your Body, offers a unique approach to maintaining a healthy lifestyle by helping consumers personalize the Food Guide Pyramid to their own specific needs.

The brochure offers reasonable and manageable actions that any consumer can work into their own daily routine to increase the quality and enjoyment of the foods they are eating and the activities they are performing. A sample menu is also provided, bringing the Food Guide Pyramid recommendations to life.

Consumers can purchase brochures for $2 each from the Food Marketing Institute by calling (202) 220-0723 or on the Web at: www.fmi.org/pub.
