Japanese Food Guide Spinning Top


In July 2005, the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare and the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries of Japan jointly released a new pictorial guide, The Japanese Food Guide Spinning Top, to help people implement the Dietary Guidelines for Japanese. It guides people as to what kinds and how much food they should eat each day to promote health. The most significant aspect of this Guide is that it estimates the quantity of food consumed in a daily diet in terms of dish quantities rather than the food quantities. This Guide uses the analogy of a spinning top. In addition to outlining the optimal food intake for Japanese people, the Japanese Food Guide Spinning Top also provides messages that aim to enhance awareness of the benefits of healthy eating.
