Sacks Morasha pupils are writing regular blog posts on a variety of topics. Read previous entries here. This week’s post is by Shuli Hajioff, Year 6:
This week our blog is based on healthy eating due to the fact that Year 3 did an outstanding performance on this particular subject. When a kid thinks of healthy food they think of broccoli and cabbage but there’s more to it. Food is sorted into five categories: Carbohydrate which includes food such as corn, brown rice and wheat. The next group of food is protein which contains eggs, meat, cheese and yogurts. The vegetable group contains any healthy vegetable such as beetroot and carrot. Apples and tomatoes (yes tomatoes are a fruit) are the healthiest fruit options. Your 5-a-day is a big part of staying healthy. Your 5-a-day is when you eat any five fruit or vegetables (or a mixture of both) daily. Our last food group is not as good for your body as its sugar and saturated fats. This group contains coke and sweets. It is important you only consume sugar and fat in small doses. If not, it can lead to serious health issues like diabetes, obesity or even heart attacks. If you only eat one or two slices of cake you should be fine. I hope you found this week’s blog helpful and will try to be healthy and eat your 5-a-day.
