I understand how healthy nutrition supports my body and mind

 

The 7 main nutrient groups are:
 

carbohydrates

fats

protein

fibre

vitamins

minerals

water

 

How does each nutrient group help the body?
 

carbohydrates - needed for energy

protein - needed for growth and repair

fat - needed for energy and keeping warm

fibre - needed for regular bowel movements

vitamins - needed for staying healthy and fighting disease

minerals - needed for blood, bones, muscles and teeth

water - needed for dissolving salts and washing out things that the body does not need
