Count It Twice!
By Erin Horner
  

1     Your body is growing! Each day you have the chance to feed your body the fuel it needs so that it can be healthy and strong. Your body needs protein, dairy, fruits, vegetables, and grains. Many foods like carrots and grapes are easy to classify. You can count carrots as one serving of vegetables and grapes as a serving of fruit.
 
2     Some foods, though, have to be counted twice...and it's not because they're twice as good for you! Some foods need to be counted as a food group serving and as empty calories. Empty calorie foods are foods that contain added sugars or solid fats. It is recommended that girls ages 4-13 and boys ages 4-8 eat no more than 120 empty calories each day. Older boys (9-13) can eat a few more but should consume less than 160 empty calories per day.
