Milk/cheese/yoghurt: 1-2 servings daily
Veggies: 8-10 servings daily
Fruit: 2-3 servings daily

I've no idea if the variant is close to paleo or not, so I haven't placed this in the Paleo section, but it's interesting to note that they claim it is a better pyramid structure. I now wonder what the original Swedish food pyramid looked like. The idea of 8-10 servings of fruit and veg is certainly not new as that has been brought up previously in several articles that I've come across.

Anyway, maybe someone will find it handy.
It's pretty close to Paleo. Grains and legumes are a no go.
