  • 1. Health education & nutrition
    Second Grade level
  • 2. Importance of food variety
    There is no single food that can provide all of the necessary nutrients that the body needs.
    For example, an orange has plenty of Vitamin C, but contains ZERO Vitamin B12.
    Meat, fish and poultry are major contributors of Iron, Zinc, and B Vitamins…
    Vegetarians should try extra hard to incorporate these nutrients in their daily diets, from other foods that Vegetarians are able to eat.
  • 3. Importance of food variety
    Those who are lactose intolerant must try extra hard to eat foods high in Vitamin D and Calcium, without having dairy!
    An alternative to milk is Almond Milk.
    1 cup contains 25% Vitamin D and 25% Calcium!
    It is made from soaked almonds and grinded/blended together to become a milk replacement.
  • 4. Classification of food groups
    Which food fits where?!?!?!
  • 5. Cereals and grains
    Cereals and grains contain high amounts of carbohydrates. These give the body energy and a sense of fullness.
    Any food made from wheat, rice, oats, cornmeal, or barley is a grain product.
    Half of your grains eaten each day should be WHOLE grains!
  • 6. vegetables
    Vegetables are organized into 5 subgroups.
    Dark green vegetables
    Orange vegetables
    Starchy vegetables
    Dry beans and peas
    Other Vegetables
    The color of vegetables are affected by the vitamins and minerals contained in them. Therefore, getting a wide variety of different colored vegetables is extremely important!
  • 7. Fruits
    -Fruits provide Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Potassium and Fiber.
    -These nutrients are found in all different kinds of fruits, so be sure to incorporate a wide variety in your daily diet.
    -FUN FACT: Vitamin C helps our body heal cuts and bruises and fight infections!
  • 8. Protein Foods and dairy
    The protein foods group includes all foods made from meat, poultry, fish, dry beans and peas, eggs, nuts and seeds.
    Dry beans and peas are also in the vegetable group!
    All fluid milk products and foods made from milk are in the dairy group
    The most common categories in this group are milk, yogurt, cheeses and milk-based desserts.
  • 9. Fats, sugars and oil
    -At the top, smallest part of the pyramid for a reason!
    -Should be eaten in moderation and used sparingly
    -Foods included in this group are: butter, mayonnaise, candy, soft drinks, syrups, jellies, etc.
    -Most of the foods in this category contain very little vitamins and minerals, and therefore considered “empty calorie” foods.
  • 10. Combination foods
    A lot of the foods we eat are mixed together in different combinations
    Therefore, these foods do not just fit in one specific category
    Some examples:
    Meat Lasagna
    Cheese Pizza
    Apple pie
    Chicken Noodle Soup
  • 11. Characteristics of combination foods
    Combination foods help balance the amount of nutrients our bodies receive.
    Food combining allows the body to digest the nutrients within each food group to their full extent
    However, incorrect food combinations can be damaging to one’s digestion.
    Ex) starches and proteins should be eaten at separate meals.
    Each group blocks each other out from digesting and can lead to bloating, gas, abdominal discomfort and poor digestion of the nutrients the body needs.
  • 12. Characteristics of combination foods
    Some other tips to be used when combining foods for meals:
    Eat carbohydrate foods and protein foods at separate meals. Protein foods require acid for proper digestion.
    NEVER combine melons with other foods.
    Desserts eaten on top of heavy, hearty meals do NOT do well with the digestive system.
    Only eat one protein food per meal. (Although getting protein is important, an overload can lead to many health issues.)
  • 13. Limited foods
    Some definite foods to try and limit are:
    Deep fried foods
    Foods that contain trans-fat
    White and refined flour products
    White rice
    Some dairy products
  • 14. Limited beverages
    Many of us do not consider the high amount of calories and poor nutrients that some beverages contain.
    Here’s what should be AVOIDED:
    Mixed Alcoholic Beverages
    Soft drinks, including diet pop
    Sweetened Teas
    Flavored Waters
    Various Smoothies
    Certain sports drinks
