Health and Nutrition
To stay healthy, it is important for us to eat a balance of all the food groups. The food groups are: vegetables, fruits, proteins, grains, fats and dairy.
Vegetables include carrots and peas. The more veggies you eat, the better!
Fruits include apples and bananas. Fruit is great for you and it makes an amazing snack!
Proteins include beans and meats. It is important to eat protein because it helps you stay strong.
Grains include items such as bread or muffins. When eating grains, try to look for whole grain foods because they are better for you.
Fats include things like oil and butter. It is important to eat fats, but in moderation.
Lastly, Dairy is anything that can be made with milk, such as yogurt or cheese. Dairy is a good source of calcium, which helps us have strong bones.
