The food pyramid is a diagram with which dieticians, nutritionists and doctors have graphically represented the Mediterranean diet.

Foods that should be consumed with every meal are found at the base of the pyramid, as they guarantee a balanced diet. These include cereals, fruit and vegetables, accompanied by an important consumption of water and olive oil as a dressing. Moving up the pyramid we find food groups that should be consumed daily, in moderation, such as yogurt and cheeses, spices, aromatic herbs, garlic and onion, together with a glass of wine. The next step in the food pyramid includes food groups that should be consumed on a weekly basis, white and red meat, fish, eggs and vegetables. Finally, the top of the food pyramid includes desserts that should be kept for special occasions and eaten in small quantities.
