1 Your body needs five things: Carbohydrates,protein,fibre,vitamins and minerals…

2 Carbohydrates  Carbohydrates are found in a wide array of both healthy and unhealthy foods (bread, beans, milk, popcorn, potatoes, cookies…) They also come in a variety of forms. The most common and abundant forms are sugars, fibers, and starches.  Foods high in carbohydrates are an important part of a healthy diet. Carbohydrates provide the body with glucose, which is converted to energy used to support bodily functions and physical activity.

3 Protein  Protein builds, maintains, and replaces the tissues in your body.  Your muscles, your organs, and your immune system are made up mostly of protein.  The best sources are beef, poultry, fish, eggs, dairy products, nuts, seeds, and legumes.

4 Fibre  Fibre is found in cereals, fruits and vegetables.  The main role of fibre is to keep the digestive system healthy.  Fibre is even more important for older people. The digestive system slows down with age, so a high-fibre diet becomes even more important.

5 Vitamins  Vitamins are substances that your body needs to grow and develop normally. There are 13 vitamins your body needs.  They are : 1. Vitamin A 2. B vitamins 3. Vitamin C 4. Vitamin D 5. Vitamin E 6. Vitamin K

6 Minerals  Minerals are important for your body to stay healthy. Your body uses minerals for many different jobs, including building bones, making hormones and regulating your heartbeat.

7 Sugar  Sugar isn't bad for you. It's carbohydrate and so it gives you energy. However, you shouldn't eat a lot of it.  Firstly,sugar contains a lot of calories.  Secondly, sugar contains no vitamins or minerals,so it's better to eat fruits. Fruits contains sugar, but you get the vitamins and minerals, too.
