Nutrition assessment and education: Tool 1


The HEC Healthy Eating Pyramid

The HEC pyramid was developed by our nutrition experts at the Healthy Eating Club. It is based on the Mediterranean, Asian and 12345+ pyramids and the Australian Guide to Healthy Eating.

Filling out the pyramid will give you a snap shot of your current diet, and indicate foods that you might need to eat more of, as well as foods you may need to cut down on. It can also be used as a dietary assessment and education tool by doctors and dietitians in clinical practice. (Please note: Tool 2 is the Weekly food variety score).

Download a copy of the HEC Pyramid for adults for your use at home (or in your clinic if you are a doctor or dietitian).
