Food & Nutrition
Good nutrition is one of the keys to good health. This means making sure you regularly eat foods that
have a lot of vitamins and minerals in them, as well as foods that are not high in fat.
You should drink milk every day to give your bones the calcium that makes them strong. For most people,
foods that are high in fiber are a good choice, and almost everyone should eat several fruits and vegetables every day.
Foods that are high in fat and added sugar have lots of calories. Fat has almost twice the calories of carbohydrates
and protein. Also, compared with calories that come from carbohydrates or proteins, calories that come from fat are
more easily used by your body to make body fat.
High Calorie Foods
Foods high in calories from fat and/or added sugar Pastries,
doughnuts, cakes, cookies, sweet rolls, pies Most crackers and
chips Cheeses Cooking oils, margarine, butter, lard, shortening
Cream, ice cream Fried foods, hot dogs and luncheon meats Regular
