Q1. Mammals need food for energy. Give two other reasons why food is needed.

Q2. Explain why having a bowl of cereal in the morning is better than having a can of energy drink.

Q3. Explain why eating lots of vegetables is very important to prevent constipation.


  • Why Nutrients are needed

  • Mammals are made up of many cells and those cells need nutrients for:

  • Energy– for all the chemical reactions which take place in the cells

  • Growth– make more cells

  • Repair– replace damaged cells


  • On your exercise book:

  • Write down seven foods containing high amounts of carbohydrates

  • Write down five foods containing high amounts of lipids

  • Write down five foods containing high amounts of proteins


  • The three classes of foodthat mammals consume to obtain nutrients are:

  • Carbohydrates

  • Lipids

  • Proteins


  • Carbohydrates

  • Carbohydrates are starch and cellulose.

  • Starch is a very very long molecule, made of many tiny units called glucose molecules. Glucose is commonly known as sugar.

  • Cellulose is also a very long molecule made of glucose molecules but it cannot be digested!



Circle five foods on the list that have the highest amount of energy.

Circle (in a different colour) five foods on the list that have the lowest amount of energy.


Lipids

Lipids are fats and oils, made up of glycerol and fatty acids.

Lipids have three times more energy than carbohydrates, but are much harder to break down.


Proteins

Protein molecules are made up of many amino acids.

Proteins contain little amount of energy but they are needed for growth and repairing of the body, as they are the building blocks of cells.
