Transcript of Food & Nutrition

Food groups are building blocks for your health and well being. Before you eat think about what you place on your bowl or your plate. The five food groups are Grains, Fruits, Vegetables, Dairy and Carbohydrates.

The serving of the five food groups are:
Carbohydrates: 6 servings a day
Vegetables: 3 servings a day
Fruit: 2 servings a day
Dairy: 3 servings a day
Protein: 2 servings a day
Sweets: use sparingly
Recommended Daily Intake
Food Groups
Nutritional Value
Weekly Intake
Carbohydrates are the main source of energy, fuels the body and everything the body does! Sugars and starches boost fibre as they are found in fruit and sometimes vegetables, dairy products and grain based foods! Eat grain based foods to boost your fibre.

Sodium also known as salt is needed for good health but too much can cause adverse health effects (the raising of blood pressure). Diets have too much sodium due to the amount of salt in packaged products. It is important to be aware of your sodium intake for heart health therefore you should consume the recommended intake.

Protien provides energy, helps growth, repair blood cells and builds muscles. Animal based products (fish, meat, chicken, eggs, etc), Also grain based foods (bread, cereal, rice, pasta) are all proteins. It is best to choose protein foods that are low in saturated fat.

Sugars are carbohydrates that provide the body with energy (our bodys fuel). Sugars occur naturally in fruit, vegetables and dairy products, it is also used to add flavour, colour and texture. It is important to take no more than the recommended intake and limit the foods that are high in added sugars and low in nutrients.
What is Nutrition? Why do you need it?
Food Group, Nutritional Value,
Nutrition is the study of nutrients. Nutrients falls into two groups: macronutrients, which you need relatively large amounts; and micronutrients, which are mostly needed in small amounts.

Nutrition is the process of providing and obtaining the necessary for food for health or growth. Good nutrition not only allows us to function well physcially, but mentlly as well.

There are minerals, vitamins, amino acids ( which some proteins are in) and also some fatty acids. We must regularly choose foods that supply these minerals and vitamins.

Food & Nutrition
The recomened Intake for:
Energy: 10 600 kj Protein: 50 grams
Fat: 10 grams Carbohydrates: 310 grams
Sugar: 110 grams Sodium: 50 grams
Now that I have learned what nutrition is, why I need it, the food groups, nutritional value and the recommended intake. I am able to choose healthy meals for breakfast, dinner and lunch! I can balance my healthy life style and make nutritional choices!

I made a healthy choice off the foods I picked but had to much sugar and needed more Fiber for my body! This project has helped me decide what foods that I need to stay clear off and what foods I need to eat more of! Also of what foods are and why we need them!!

Energy is a kilojoules not a nutrient. This is important for daily activities as it fuels your body's metabolism and physical fitness. You need to balance your energy. if you don't burn your kilojoules spare energy turns into fat!

Fat contributes to energy and helps absorb vitail vitimans. A healthy diet needs an amount of fat, preferably the recommended intake. There are two main fats- saturated that is from animal sources and unsaturated which is from vegtables sources. You should choose unsaturated fat as much as possible.

Vitamins and Minerals makes people bodies work properly! Vitamins fall into two catagories fat sobule and water soluble. Fat sobule are A, D, E and K vitamins dissolve into fat and are stored in your body where water slouble vitamins C and B need to be dissovled in water before your body absorbs the vitamins. Vitimans also boost the immune system, support normal growth and delvelopment and helps cells and organs do there job!
