My Balanced Diet

Disclaimer: The balanced diet mentioned below is purely my knowledge gathered from my mom. 

My mom being a science teacher always make sure my family eats a proper balanced diet. She prepares recipes which accommodates at least a fruit, a vegetable, a pulse variety and a cereal  variety daily. 
According to me, south Indian meals are a very good example for a balanced diet. Below is the balanced diet I am trying to follow for my family.
