  1. Hooray for Nutrients! By Sarah Reny

  2. Carbohydrates Major source of energy Two Types Complex (starches) Simple (sugars) Body breaks them down into simple sugars Cause blood sugar level to rise quick Sources: pasta, honey, fruit, table salt etc…

  3. Fats • Major source of long-term energy • Develops nervous system • helps absorb vitamins • Three Types • Saturated (bad  heart disease ) • Trans (worst  heart disease ) • Unsaturated (good  healthy heart) • Daily Amount= 30 % • Sources • Butter, cheese, olive oil, peanut butter, fried foods etc…

  4. Protein • Builds and maintains body tissues • 2 types • Complete (containing 9 amino acids) • Incomplete (lacking one or more amino acids) • Muscles and organs made up of proteins • Makes haemoglobin (cells carrying oxygen) • Daily amount= 10% • Sources • beef, poultry, fish, eggs, nuts, etc…

  5. Vitamins • Substances eaten that boost our bodies • Two Types • Fat Soluble • Water Soluble • Fat soluble stored in fat tissues & liver • Daily intake depends on which vitamins (K, D, C, etc…) • Vitamins are in these foods • beef, poultry, nuts, citrus fruit etc…

  6. Minerals • Boost immune system and support growth • 2 types • Macro (calcium, sodium, etc…) • Trace (chromium, copper, etc…) • Inorganic elements coming from soil and water • Help cells and organs do specific jobs • Sources • Salt, red meat, nuts, cocoa, etc…

  7. Fibre • helps clean intestines by moving bowel movements • 2 types • Soluble (dissolves water) • Un-soluble (doesn’t dissolve water) • Boosts immune system • Slows absorption of sugar • Sources • Cereals, peas, artichokes, etc…

  8. Water • Two parts hydrogen, one part oxygen • Makes up over half your body weight • If not enough you can become dehydrated • Dehydration can cause sickness and slow reflexes • Cells depend on water to survive • Cant live without for over 3 days
