A Message From the Food Department
This is Ashley, Head of the Food Department.
I have been taking nutrition classes with my mom and brother since January of this year. My mom wanted us to learn how to make better food choices.
Sugary cereals= bad health
Before going to the classes, I loved to eat sugary cereals. Now, I eat cereals with not a lot of sugar. What I used to do was put three cups of cereal in the bowl. In class they say that I should only have one cup.
Portion size=palm of hand
Another thing I learned is that I should eat the amount of food that can fit in the palm of my hand.
This doesn't seem like it is a lot of food, but it is enough. So for every meal, a palm of food can fill me up.
Sugary drinks=trip to the dentist
The drinks that I should not drink are sodas, Arizona green tea, Gatorade, and juice. I need to replace it with water.
Fruits and vegetables are great for snack.
These are some of the things I have learned in my nutrition class. I hope that you have learned something too.
