+ Vegetables
+ Fruit
+ Meat
+ Dairy
+ Junk Food These food groups help us get
nutrition to fuel up our body's
and also will help us live. Grains are the most important food group and we need to eat it more then any other food. Grains +our bodies were designed to subsist mostly on grains
+Grains should supply us with the majority of our energy intake
+Grains are loaded with complex carbohydrates that take a lot of +time to metabolize and turn into energy.
+By eating grains, your circulatory system doesn't get hammered +with a ton of glucose that's hard to process
+Fiber has been directly linked to reducing heart disease. It also tends to clean the intestinal walls and generally promotes good health.
grains in their whole seed form are the longest storing foods obtainable The Anatomy of Whole Grain Vegetables And Fruits things that are rich in vegetables and fruits: Lower blood pressure; reduced risk of heart disease, stroke, and probably some cancers; lower risk of eye and digestive problems; and a mellowing effect on blood sugar that can help keep appetite in check.
you should have six to seven servings (at least 4½ cups) of vegetables and fruits a day.(for our age 9-13) The university of Harvard Says that you should give variety of kinds and colors of produce, to give your body the mix of nutrients it needs. Dark leafy greens, cooked tomatoes, and anything that’s a rich yellow, orange, or red color. Meat And Dairy Lean meats are packed with important nutrients like B vitamins and B6, which help the body's metabolism, aid in red blood cell formation and play a vital role in our nervous system; iron, found particularly in red meat, helps maintain energy and carry oxygen through the bloodstream.magnesium, which is vital for building bones; and zinc, which is essential for our immune system. What's more, eating lean beef, veal, pork, and poultry can be part of a reasonable weight management program that also includes generous amounts of fresh fruits and vegetable along with whole grains. No other beverage gives you more complete nutrients than milk. This has many good things in it like:Bone-strengthening calcium ,High-quality protein ,Potassium , Vitamin A , Vitamin D,Carbohydrates ,B vitamins . University of Tennessee researchers found that overweight people who downed three servings a day of calcium-rich dairy lost more belly fat than those who followed a similar diet minus two or more of the dairy servings. This goes to prove that milk and dairy products are really good for you. milk is one of the best muscle foods on the planet. Junk Food Many people think that junk food is really bad for you but thats only when you go overboard and eat things like hamburgers which is full of calories.
