Of the five nutrients which our body needs,proteins,carbohydrates and fats are called macro-nutrients.They are needed in large amounts to keep our body working properly.On the other hand,vitamins and minerals are called micro-nutrients.They are needed in small amounts.
I see!Can you tell me more about each of the nutrient?It sounds interesting!
Of course!Let’s start from proteins.Proteins came from two sources.Proteins from animal foods are animal proteins,which have high biological value.Proteins from plant foods are plant proteins which have low biological value,except soya bean.It provides high biological value.
Yes,Car born high J’s. Sugar starch, Sugar,a quick source of energy,known as”empty energy food”, starch,which is stored in many plants,and is a good source of energy with other nutrients, dietary fibre dietary fibre or cellulose which is found in the wall of plant cells help to remove body waste,are the three groups of CARBOHYDRATES!!!
Wah!!!Wha t come next?Wha t come next? Next is fats,fats is a more concentrated form of energy,fats from animal sources are animal fats.Fats from plant sources are plant fats,you know,cholesterol is mainly found in it. Oh!I hate fats,it make me become overweight!!!
……… Ha Ha……… Hey!You see,Odie would like to tell you the details about Micro- nutrients!!! Really!?
Hee Hee!Vitamins are substances which are vital to life.Vitamins B and C are water- soluble.Vitamins A and D are fat-soluble.Woo... …………
Minerals are essential to the body.It helps our body to work properly.There are four main minerals,they are calcium, phosphorus, iron and iodine.
Phosphorus…… What’s the matter? I’ve heard that vitamins D+ calcium+ phosphorus = form bones & teeth
Garfield,you should remember that you must not eat too much of each nutrient.Eat more fruits and vegetables.Both starch and dietary fibre are useful in our diet.As they are bulky,they can fill us up.We feel full and will not overeat.
OK,I think you must already find the cause of your unwell body,right? Yes,thank you! You are so welcome! HA HA………
Hay ! Let me tell you what is the nutrient.There are two kinds of nutrients. One is macro nutrients, other one is micro nutrients.
Macro nutrients are proteins, carbohydrates and fats. They are need in large amounts to keep our body working properly.
