Re: Diagram of 5 food groups on cover:

In the Cereal food group there is an image near the centre of the circle that I can't identify - is it a type of pasta?

My concern is it looks like hot chips. This type of diagram is used a lot with primary school children when discussing healthy eating and I feel that image is sending the wrong message - children will see it as hot chips. It needs to be clearly identifiable to all and at the moment is not. I would suggest finding a better image of what ever it is.
