Do you remember learning about the different food groups in school? Depending on your age you may have learn a wheel, a pyramid, a plate or some other shape to help you remember the food groups. A food guide has been used for over 100 years. The basic food groups have remained the same meats, breads, fruits, vegetables, and dairy. Depending on the model sometimes they were split up and other time combined. They are updated as scientists discovered vitamins, minerals, and other components that make up our foods. It is an ongoing process and will continue to evolve as we learn more about what foods keep us healthy.
