Food group guidelines may differ by country due to differences in dietary patterns and hence differences in nutritional deficiencies, but also due to different nutritional recommendations arising from interpretation of the same dietary evidence. There are limited nutritional guidelines for infants in both the United Kingdom and elsewhere. There appears to be no pictorial representation of food intake by food group for infants. The portion size of foods may differ between infants, depending on their energy requirements, and hence information on the relative number of servings of foods from different food groups may be more useful than actual portion sizes. If the portion size of food and the number of portions of food from the four food groups are appropriate, then nutritional requirements should be met. Verification of the suggested food group combinations could be undertaken based on vitamin A and vitamin D, calcium and iodine; however, these verifications are not included.
