Hi grace! How are you my friend? Yap, we do have this food pyramid but filipinos always forgot to follow these pyramid because we always love to eat. Especially, fast food for the busy people and they say fast food is not really good for our health.

Hi desiree,fine here.How'w life? thanks for responding hahaha it seems you're the only one interested here hahaha.Anyway, it's true , even me i cannot afford to eat those foods in the food pyramid,because most of the time i can't go to the market because i am so busy working (hay life!)Very pre-occupied with many schedules. But at least now, we found some carideria and small restaurants that cooks delicious and nutritious foods and at a very affordable price.So we can at least avoid all the fast foods and fatty foods outside. Just be cautious with the surroundings, they might be using dirty kitchen though (hahaha)..Anyway hope to hear more of you next coming chat..Happy lotting my friend.

Maybe there are others also that will notice this discussion of yours. If they don't notice this it means that filipinos are not really into food pyramid. I think only moms know this food
