This is a 'Jason' version of the varied and controversial official food pyramids. It is a basic guide, a support, an inspiration, an overview. Print it and stick it up somewhere you will look at it while getting food, preparing food, cooking food or buying food!

The reason I am so hard on the JSB Quiz is that 90%+ of Kiwis are dying young from NCDs. We lose more than one Kiwi every 90 minutes from preventable heart disease alone. Over 40% from heart disease (which we know is around 99% preventable).
