Crixivan (Indinavir)

If you have calculated the nutritive value of a diet for one day, you would agree that this is somewhat time consuming. Fortunately, some short cuts have been developed. The Four Food Groups is a useful guide when properly used.
Milk group
2 cups for adults
2 to 3 cups for children under 9 years
3 to 4 cups for children 9 to 12 years 3 to 4 cups for teenagers
3 cups or more for pregnant women
4 cups or more for lactating women
Meat group
2 servings. Count as one serving:
2 to 3 ounces lean, cooked beef, veal, pork, lamb, poultry, fish – without bone
2 eggs
1 cup cooked dry beans, dry peas, lentils
4 tablespoons peanut butter
Vegetable-fruit group
4 or more servings per day, including: serving of citrus fruit, or other fruit or vegetable as a good source of vitamin C, or 2 servings of a fair source
1 serving, at least every other day, of a dark green or deep yellow vegetable for vitamin A
2 or more servings of other vegetables and fruits, including potatoes
Bread-cereals group
4 or more servings daily (whole grain, enriched, or restored). Count as one serving:
1 slice bread
1 ounce ready-to-eat cereal
1/2 to 3/4 cup cooked cereal, corn meal, grits, macaroni, noodles, rice, or spaghetti
Each of the food groups includes a variety of foods that contribute important nutrients. No single food group furnishes all needed nutrients. Nor are all foods in each group equally valuable for their nutrients. Therefore’, in menu planning from day to day choices should be made from a wide variety of foods that belong to these groups.
The Four Food Groups have been criticized for a number of reasons. (1) They are only an approximate measure of the nutritive quality of the diet. They do not guarantee that the recommended allowances will be met for all nutrients; for example, iron for women.
(2) It is difficult to use the groupings when food mixtures or many new foods in the market are used. For example, into which group or groups would you place lasagna or pizza? (3) Substantial modifications would be required if the Dietary Goals are to be implemented.
