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