Vocabulary Your body is like a car. Without fuel, the car cannot work. Your body works in a similar way. Your body needs energy for physical activity, bone and muscle growth, and fighting off sickness. You get your energy from the food that you eat. Nutrient – The substances in food that your body needs to function properly.
Six classes of essential nutrients Carbohydrates Fats Proteins Vitamins Minerals Water
Vitamins and minerals help your body use and regulate the energy from the other nutrients. Water helps transport those nutrients.
