Mr. Williston

 

Did you know that vegetables are loaded with nutrients and are full of the vitamins, minerals and fiber we need to be healthy?

 

There are 5 different types of vegetables (I didn’t know that until now).

 

Type 1: Dark green vegetables – Example: broccoli, kale

 

Type 2: Starchy vegetables – Example: potatoes, corn

 

Type 3: Red and orange vegetables – Example: carrots, pumpkins

 

Type 4: Beans and peas – Example: black beans, kidney beans

 

Type 5: All other vegetables – Example: lettuce, onions

 

Try to eat vegetables from each group as much as possible and remember that lots of them don’t even need to be cooked before you eat them.

 

Fresh vegetables are a healthy choice, but not always available, so try frozen ones because they are still loaded with all the nutrients we need.

 

 

 

Try this quiz and see what you remember.

 

1.       How many types of vegetables did you read about?

 

2.       Blue and green vegetables are one of the types listed. True or False

 

3.       Vegetables only have fiber in them. True or False

 

4.       Only fresh vegetables are good to eat. True or False

 

5.       List the vegetables you can eat raw.

Good Morning KSE Family,

Each day I will be posting a tip for a healthy lifestyle that I hope you can read and share with your family.

Day 1 – Tip #1 “A Healthy Diet”

Have some fruit!

All fruits are full of vitamins and these are needed to keep you healthy. Did you know that vitamins help you see different colours? Vitamins help you to see better and they turn food into energy. Vitamins help your bones grow stronger.

Fruits are also full of minerals.  Minerals help your body fight off infections and heal after a cut. Minerals help your brain and nerves work so you can control your body and keep your muscles strong.

Fruits are full of fiber and fiber helps you poop (Yes, I said “Poop”), so they help carry away waste (and when I say “waste” I really mean poop).

Also, fruit come with their own wrappers that you just need to peel, like oranges, so they are an easy snack for anyone.

 

Try this quiz and see what you remember.

1.      1. Fruits are full of __________. (Fill in the blank)

2.      2. Minerals in fruit keep you muscles strong. Ture or False

3.      3. The fiber in fruit helps me ____________. (Fill in the blank)

4.      4. List you three favorite fruits. 1.________________ 2. ._______________  3. ._______________ 

5.      5. List a fruit that comes in its own wrapper that is not an orange. _________________
