Food Patterns Equivalents Database 2013-14: Methodology and User Guide
Food Patterns Equivalents Database is the new name for the former MyPyramid Equivalents Database. The Food Patterns Equivalents Database (FPED) 2013-14 has been developed based on the USDA Food Pattern definitions used in the Dietary Guidelines for Americans.
The Food Patterns (FP) provide calorie-based dietary guidance on how much Americans should eat from each of the FP components such as Fruits, Vegetables, Grains, Protein Foods, Dairy, and Oils to have a healthful diet, while simultaneously placing limits on the amounts of added sugars, solid fats, and alcoholic drinks that can be consumed.
