The National Healthy Food Pyramid with the latest revisions compiled by the Nutrition Office of the Health Ministry has been published. “The pyramid along with guidelines on healthy regimens and optimal servings during a day are published in a book,” said Zahra Abdollahi, head of the Nutrition Office, IRNA reported. A national campaign to raise awareness on healthy eating is underway until December-end in cooperation with the Education Ministry, IRIB, State Welfare Organization, municipalities, and the health departments at the Islamic Republic of Iran Army and the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, she added. The campaign aims to encourage the general public to cut down on consuming sugar, salt, and fats and increase their daily intake of vegetables and fruit in order to check the rate of non-communicable diseases, the second leading cause of premature death in the country.
