SAAOL Menu planning

For planning the meals, the daily diet should be chosen from all five groups (cereal grains and products, pulses and legumes, milk, and milk products), which ensures meeting the requirement of all nutrients. The fat group is excluded from the list for heart patients. The heart patient will get their fat requirement from the invisible fat sources i.e. from all the other food groups. With experience, one learns to choose sufficient quantity from each group. One group cannot be substituted for another.
