And a Well-Balanced Diet

Gone are the days of the old food pyramid and the 4 Basic food groups.

 The New Food Pyramid is a tool to educate people to eat a more balanced diet from a greater variety of food portions without counting calories. The USDA has now expanded the four food groups to six groups and expanded the number of servings to meet the calorie needs of most people.

The New Pyramid, or MyPyramid, is color coded. Orange for grains, Green for Vegetables, Red for fruits, blue for dairy, purple for meats and beans, And yellow for fats,oil,sugars, and basics.

 Thrive has incorporated these colors on each label of their products. All your grains are easily recognized by their orange labeling, and your veggie by their green label, your fruits by their red label and so forth.

 Our color coded cans keep your food conveniently organized while ensuring your diet contains the proper amount of balance and variety. When used in conjunction with our Food Rotation Systems, THRIVE foods are continually rotated, guaranteeing your family receives the freshest food possible.

Thrive has made planning, preparing, and storing healthy & nutritious meals for your family more simple than ever before!!
