Stay Healthy; Take a Science Class!
by Trudi




It is that time of year again when we have to think about staying healthy as everyone is sneezing all around us. We all know that we need to have a healthy diet, exercise, drink water, and sleep. From Science class you may have learned about the 6 types of nutrients. These include proteins, minerals, vitamins, fibre, carbohydrates, and water. These nutrients help make a healthy diet.

Eating a healthy diet is not always easy with our busy lives. The website below from Health Canada offers
information that can help in making small but important changes so that you eat healthier. I like that they tell you how to make a plan too.

Having fun with healthy food for the whole family is possible. Here is a website that helps to involve the entire family eating healthy. There are healthy kids’ recipes and a section for parents that will test your skill at putting a healthy meal together.

Here are some other websites with quizzes:

http://www.measureup.gov.au/internet/abhi/publishing.nsf/Content/quiz-how-healthy

This website quizzes you on your knowledge of healthy eating. It will tell you whether you are correct or give you the correct answer after you select your answer.

http://www.consumerreports.org/health/healthy-living/diet-nutrition/healthy-foods/healthy-eating/healthful-eating-quiz/index.htm

This website gives you a quiz about how much fibre is in some of the foods that people eat. After you select your answer, you will get the correct answer as well as how other people answered the same question.

 

Taking Science classes will help to give more vocabulary and information about your body and about nutrition and staying healthy. If you have the time, it will be helpful to take the extra science classes offered for English levels 7, 8, 9 and 10. They will be useful for English and interesting too.
