Like all living creatures, boys and girls, men and women need to feed themselves and take in nutrition throughout their lives.
We need to eat and be active so that we can grow, learn, play…
We need to eat to live!
This doesn’t mean that we have to eat a lot. The person who eats the most doesn’t grow the most – in fact it’s the person who eats the best. However, it is true that you grow less if you don’t eat well.
That’s why we say that we are eating properly when the food we eat over the course of a day is sufficient, complete, adequate and varied.
