You Are What You Eat
By Patti Hutchison
  

1     Everyone loves to eat! Food gives our bodies energy. It helps keep us alive. Food comes in many different forms. To stay healthy, you should eat different kinds of food.
 
2     Each kind of food helps our bodies in a different way. There are several basic food groups. You should eat some food from each group.
 
3     One food group is protein. Protein helps us build strong muscles. We get protein from meat, fish, and eggs. Beans, peanut butter, and nuts give us protein, too. You should eat at least three protein foods every day.
 
4     Another food group is dairy foods. These are milk, cheese, and yogurt. Dairy foods help us have strong bones and teeth. You should have at least three dairy foods every day.
 
5     Fruits and vegetables are good for us, too. They give us lots of different kinds of vitamins. Oranges have lots of vitamin C. Carrots are a good source of vitamin A. Vitamins C and A help our eyes and skin. You should try to eat at least five fruits and vegetables every day.
