Transcript of 5 Nutrition Food Groups

Foundation Meats & Beans Fats & Oils Why being healthy is important Dairy Cows are an important part in the dairy column of the food pyramid, dairy cows provide over 90% of the entire planet's milk supply.

10 pounds of milk=1 pound of cheese, 21 pounds of milk=1 pound of butter & 12 pounds of milk to make 1 gallon of ice cream. Milk is comprised of 85%-95% of water. The rest of it is from nutritious vitamins, proteins,(milk would not be frothy without its protein content) carbohydrates, & fat.
A cow udder holds 25-50 pounds of pure milk.A single cow holds 90 glasses of milk every day about 200,000 glasses per lifetime.

We can also get milk from goats. Goats milk contains more butter fat than cow's milk.Goat's milk is the primary ingredient in cheeses like feta, caporino, gevirk, & rocamadour.

Camels & dromedaries also provide milk, like Donkeys, Reindeer, Sheep, Water buffalo, Yaks, Moose, Horses, Soy, Hemp, Coconuts, & Almonds. Grains= orange

Carbohydrates, fiber, vitamins and minerals are all in grains.

Examples: bread, oatmeal, crackers, cereal, pasta, rice, and un-buttered, un-salted popcorn.

You need to make at least half of your grains whole grains.

Girls= 5-7 1oz servings of grain products each day
Boys= 6-9 1oz servings of grains each day (serving size=1 slice of bread, 1 cup of cereal, or 1/2 cup of cooked pastas, rice, or cereal). It's recommended to eat at least 5 servings of fruit each day as their health benefits are so great for many reasons.

A fruit is formed by a ripened ovary of a flower. They are typically sweet or sour in taste and picked only after they have ripened for maximum flavor & nutritious value.

The most popular sweet fruits we all know are fruits like apple, banana, mango, & orange where lemon, lime & grapefruit are considered a citrus fruit & enjoyed for their bitter/sour flavors.

Fruit contains 80% water and since the human body is mostly water and needs big amounts of water to survive, the body gets both a large amount of vitamins and water from fruit consumption.
Fruits are the ultimate stimulating factor of your brain. They've been nicknamed brain fuel and that if you want to increase the power of your memory; fruits should be an important part in your diet. 5 Food Groups Healthy people live longer lives than
