3. Nutrition Song


 
Let´s try a different way to learn about the Nutrition proccess.Here you have the
NUTRITION SONG!:






Let me tell you a story
A story needed for life.
It´s all about,
A great process called NUTRITION.
How do you think we can move?
How do you think a butterfly flies?
How do you think all the plants
 can grow up?
How can we interact?

All we need is ENERGY
 ENERGY is just all that we need.
 All we need is ENERGY
 And we get energy in this process,
A great process called NUTRITION,
 NUTRITION, NUTRITION, NUTRITIOOOOONNNN.

Well..., to get ENERGY,We need some special ingredients.

First comes
OXIGEN,that we get in the breathing process.
Then the NUTRIENTS from the food
 after the DIGESTION is made.
OXIGEN and NUTRIENTS
are TRANSPORTED to our CELLS.
All we need is ENERGY
 ENERGY is just all that we need.
 All we need is ENERGY
 And we get energy in this process,
A great process called NUTRITION,
 NUTRITION, NUTRITION, NUTRITIOOOOONNNN.
And then we can fly,
and also we jump,
we can interact,
and do all we want.

But then
some
WASTES
are also produced in our cells,
so you have to
EXCRETE them away from your body...
Is the same for bacterias,
And also for the plants,
This happens with the fungi,
and in the animal life.

 All we need is ENERGY
 ENERGY is just all that we need.
 All we need is ENERGY
 And we get energy in this process,
A great process called NUTRITION,
 NUTRITION, NUTRITION, NUTRITIOOOOONNNN.

ooooooooo yeahhhhhhh!

5. Human Nutrition
Hi guys, here you´ll find the healthy eating pyramid. Check it carefully to figure out what are the foods that we need to eat in bigger quantity and which ones you should only eat in smaller ones.


Now answer the following questions:

1. Which kind of food should you eat the most? What kind of nutrients does it supply you with?

2. Which kind of food should you eat the lest? Why?

3. Now is time for you to build your own nutritional pyramid. You can first make your weekly diet, and later you can organize the food by groups.
