Baker & Taylor
Animal characters learn about "good eating everyday" in a restaurant called The Edible Pyramid, where the waiter offers the foods grouped in sections of the Food Guide Pyramid and customers learn how many servings they need each day. Simultaneous.

Holiday House
An entertaining, attractive introduction to the food pyramid.
The head waiter—a French cat in tails—the Edible Pyramid restaurant, explains the dishes to his customers, a menagerie of other animals in equally formal attire. Each segment of the pyramid is presented in a two-page spread, defining the food group mentioned and illustrating it with many mouth-watering examples. The recommended number of daily servings is also explained, and after going through the entire menu, the maitre’d helps his diners select a balanced meal. Paintings of the animals and food are done in muted colours. A small pyramid appears in the corner of each illustration, with the block being examined highlighted.

& Taylor

Customers at the Edible Pyramid restaurant learn about food groups, the types of food in each group, and how much to eat from each group every day.
