The Mediterranean Diet Pyramid

Benefits of following the Mediterranean Diet Pyramid

Developed by the Oldways Preservation Trust, the Harvard School of Public Health, and the World Health Organization in 1993, the Mediterranean Diet Pyramid is a helpful nutrition guide that summarizes the Mediterranean Diet pattern of eating. It suggests the types and frequency of foods that should be enjoyed every day, offering a healthy eating plan based on typical foods and recipes of Mediterranean-style cooking.

The foods are grouped according to how essential they are to your daily meal. Your Mediterranean diet meal plan frequency should go down as you move up the pyramid.
