Dietary guidelines for Panama (Spanish: Guas alimentarias para Panam).
The food guide chosen is a food plate divided into five food groups: starches, cereals and cereal products; fruits and vegetables; meats;
dairy products; and oils, fats and sugar. The size of the segments reflects the volume that each food group should contribute to the daily
diet. The recommendation to drink 8 glasses of water a day is placed outside the plate.
