Read the passage carefully and answer the questions following it:
There is a well-known saying that “You are what you eat”. It means if you eat healthy foods, you will be healthy. If you eat nothing but potato chips, you certainly won’t be fit and healthy. Your body needs a good mix of foods.
So which foods are good? Have you ever heard of the Food Pyramid? No, it’s not a huge pile of stones inEgypt! The Food pyramid is a chart to show the five groups of foods. This chart also tells us how much of each group of food we should eat.
Look at the picture of the Food Pyramid. What foods do you see at the base or the bottom of the pyramid? They are breads, cereals, rice, noodles, potatoes, etc. You should eat plenty of these foods. Then in the next group you can see some fresh fruits and vegetables. You must eat them regularly. As you go up the pyramid, you find dairy products (milk, cheese, yogurt) and meat, fish and beans, nuts and eggs. You should eat these food items moderately. They are important for health but we don’t need too much of them. And at the top you have fats, oils, sweets, etc. you should eat very little of these foods.
Remember that the most important meals of the day is breakfast! If you eat a healthy breakfast before leaving for school you will feel strong and active the whole day. You will then pay more attention at schools and will surely remember your lessons better.
