Why is food so important?
We love the way foods look, taste and smell, but they are also full of nutrients that have specific jobs to perfom in our bodies.
CARBOHYDRATES - Your body's main fuel source. Sugars and starches provides the energy your body needs to work, play and digest food.
FATS - Your body's long-term energy source. Lipids are needed for your body to function properly. They also protect your organs from injury and help move important fat-soluable vitamins in your body.
PROTEINS - Your body's building blocks. Amino acids build and repair tissues in your body, such as skin, muscle, and organs. They also can give your body energy if you don't eat enough carbohydrates or fat.
