Healthy food - criteria

The starting point in the composition of the basket of foodstuffs is the so-called active food triangle (Vlaams Instituut voor Gezondheidspromotie, VIG, 2006). The active food triangle is composed of nine groups: seven essential nutritional groups (indispensable for a healthy, varied and balanced diet), one physical exercise group and a residual group (the tip of the triangle, comprised of additional, non-essential foodstuffs).

The three basic principles for a healthy diet, namely balance, variation and moderation, are all adequately reflected in the active food triangle.
