Recently in science, we have been learning about the food pyramid and nutrition. An assignment was to pretend you are a dietitian and write a letter to a client.
Dear Junk Food Monster,
Junk food is not good for you. Junk food has lots of fat and sugary carbohydrates. You are skipping vitamins and minerals. If you eat too much junk food, you could get overweight, get tooth decay, and get heart disease.
Instead of junk food, you should eat starchy carbohydrates, proteins, dairy, fruit, and vegetables every day. It is okay to have some junk food every once in awhile.
If you will eat the good food, you will grow bigger and stronger. You could be the “Big Monster” or “Strong Monster” instead of the “Junk Food Monster.”
Here is a video about the food pyramid.
Here is a link to a movie about nutrition.
