Is this the correct answer for this question: What do the various sections of the food pyramid stand for? I put Fruit group, Bread, cereal, rice, and pasta group, vegetable group, milk group, meat, poultry, fish, and beans, eggs, and nuts group, also, fats, oils, and sweets. I added the fats,oils, and sweets, I didnt' know if I should have. thanks,


Your response looks pretty good to me. I have an "old" food pyramid at home that starts at the apex of the triangle (the top part) with fats, sweets and alcohol.
Below that are two groups; i.e., milk in one group and meats, cheese, fish, etc. Below are two groups; i.e., vegetables for one and fruits for the other. Below that is the base of the triangle with just one large group consisting of grains, beans, and starches. Peanuts, walnuts, cashews, almonds, and other nuts are listed under fats. You should be aware; however, that a new pyramid has been out for about a year or two. It subdivides some of the above groups. Perhaps www.google.com will have something on that. I hope this helps.
