Technical Abstract: These summary intake tables present national estimates of food intakes expressed as numbers of servings from food groups defined by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Food Guide Pyramid. These estimates are based on 1 day of food intake data collected using a 24 hour recall method from 17,107 individuals 2 years of age and older from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Surveys conducted between 1999 and 2002, and servings data from the Pyramid Servings Database for USDA Survey Food Codes Version 2.0 (PyrServDB_v2). The servings data were determined using a new method for computing lean meat, discretionary fat, and added sugars. These summary tables report mean numbers of Pyramid servings and percentages of individuals consuming specified numbers of servings from the five major Pyramid groups (grains, vegetables, fruits, meats, and dairy) and selected subgroups as well as fats, added sugars, and alcohol (30 groups in all). The data are tabulated in 20 sex-age groups for all individuals 2 years of age and older.
