Look after yourself!

We are what we eat


This site will help you to recognize the most common types of food, food groups and it will also help you to understand the need for a healthy and varied diet.

We can look after ourselves in different ways. We need to make sure that we eat a balanced diet so that our body gets all the nutrients it requires. This means eating lots of different foods. We need to eat the right amounts of the different food groups.

If we do not follow a balanced diet, we feel tired, we canít concentrate, we donít feel well and we can have health problems.

We eat three main meals every day: breakfast, lunch and dinner. It is a good idea to have two healthy snacks every day because they give us energy between meals.

Our body is about 75% water. This means that we need to drink 1.5 litres of water every day. Thatís about six glasses!

Remember WE ARE WHAT WE EAT, so think before you eat!
