A Guide Supporting the Healthy Ireland Food Pyramid
The Food Safety Authority of Ireland (FSAI) ‘Healthy eating, food safety and food legislation – a Guide Supporting the Healthy Ireland Food Pyramid’. The Guide describes in colourful detail how to make the best food choices for health and provides practical advice to protect people in Ireland from 5 years of age onwards against diet-related ill health.
Scientific evidence and technical information on safe and healthy food choices is provided from all perspectives – nutritional, microbiological and toxicological. The advice throughout this guide takes account of the food supply chain in Ireland and how this is regulated.
This guide, developed with the support of our colleagues in the Department of Health and the Health Service Executive (HSE), is designed to help health professionals, catering services and food businesses provide safe food and trustworthy information to consumers, so that they can make informed decisions about the foods they choose to eat.
