By Kathleen W. Redman

1     It's important to choose food wisely. What you eat for breakfast, lunch, and dinner can help make you healthy and energetic, or it can make you slow, tired, and overweight. It's important to eat nutritious foods at each of your meals.
2     If you're like a lot of people, three meals a day don't seem to be quite enough. Many people have snacks between meals. Some people have a little something in the morning; other people have a fairly big snack in the afternoon. Do you like to eat something after you get home from school?
3     Snacks can be healthy or very unhealthy. Sodas, candy, and doughnuts have a lot of what you don't need and very little of what you really need. What you don't need are "empty calories." Many snack foods and drinks - and even food you might eat as a meal - have a load of empty calories.
