  3. 3. What Is Nutrition-Nutrient: A chemicalsubstance in food thathelps maintain the body.-Nutrition: The study ofhow your body uses thefood that you eat.-Malnutrition: is the lackof the right proportionsof nutrients over anextended periodwww.makemegenius.comFree Science Videos for Kids
  4. 4. What is aNutrient(A nutrient is a chemical substance in foodthat helps maintain the body.)Some provide energy. All help build cellsand tissues, regulate bodily processessuch as breathing. No single food suppliesall the nutrients the body needs tofunction.Deficiency Disease: failure to meet yournutrient needs.www.makemegenius.comFree Science Videos for Kids

  6. 6. CarbohydratesThe body’s chief source of energySugarSimple CarbohydratesGlucose: BloodFructose: FruitGalactose: MilkSucroce: Table sugarStarchesComplex CarbohydratesFiberwww.makemegenius.comFree Science Videos for Kids
  7. 7. FatsImportant energy sourceLipid family which includes fats and oilsHydrogenation: adds hydrogen atoms to unsaturated fatty acids(liquid) turning them into more saturated solid fatsCrisco and margarine sticksCholesterol: fatlike substance found in every cell in the bodyImportant… found in skin tissue, produces hormonesTwo types: Dietary and Bloodwww.makemegenius.comFree Science Videos for Kids
  8. 8. ProteinsProvide energy, encourage growth and tissue repairMade up of small units called amino acids20 important to the human body: 9 your body can’t make and 11 itcanComplete protein: animal foods and soyIncomplete proteins: plant foodsMust pair 2 foods together: beans and ricewww.makemegenius.comFree Science Videos for Kids

  10. 10. VitaminsAre complex organic substancesNormal growth, maintenance, and reproductionYour body cannot produce all vitamins you can get those byeating a nutritious diet.Fat-soluble vitamins: carried in fatty parts of foods anddissolve in fats (body stores them in fat... build up can bedangerous)Water-soluble vitamins: dissolve in water (body doesnot store them)www.makemegenius.comFree Science Videos for Kids

  12. 12. Water-Soluble VitaminsVitamin B-ComplexThiamin (vitamin B1)Riboflavin (vitamin B2)Niacin (nicotinamide,nicotinic acid)Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine,pyridoxal, pyridoxamine)Folacin (folic acid)Vitamin B12Vitamin Cwww.makemegenius.comFree Science Videos for Kids
  13. 13. MineralsIn addition to vitamins your body also needs 15 mineralsthat help regulate cell function and provide structure forcells. Major minerals, in terms of amount present,include calcium, phosphorus, and magnesium. Inaddition, your body needs smaller amounts ofchromium, copper, fluoride, iodine, iron, manganese,molybdenum, selenium, zinc, chloride, potassium andsodium.Amounts needed for most of these minerals is quitesmall and excessive amounts can be toxic to your body.www.makemegenius.comFree Science Videos for Kids
  14. 14. WaterWater is your bodys most important nutrient, is involved inevery bodily function, and makes up 70- 75% of your total bodyweight. Water helps you to maintain body temperature,metabolize body fat, aids in digestion, lubricates and cushionsorgans, transports nutrients, and flushes toxins from your body.Everyone should drink at least 64 ounces per day, and if youexercise or are overweight, even more. Your blood isapproximately 90% water and is responsible for transportingnutrients and energy to muscles and for taking waste from tissues.www.makemegenius.comFree Science Videos for Kids
