What else is written in the Brazilian Food Guide about meats and eggs?

Meats and eggs are part of a healthy diet, since they have high quality proteins (complete and balanced amino acid composition) and are important sources of dietary iron.
Together with legumes, meats are the main sources of dietary protein.

Proteins should provide 10 to 15% of the total energy of the diet.

Always favor lean meats.

Fish are good sources of omega-3 fatty acids. These substances help to protect against non-communicable chronic diseases.
