AUNT BETTY’S HOUSE Leanne and Josie were cousins who spent time at  each other’s houses after school.  Josie’s mother,  Betty, was concerned about nutrition.  Her first  method of insuring good nutrition for Josie was  to simply not buy any foods that were not  nutritionally sound. Chips, candy, soda, and  cookies were only for special occasions.  Her second method was to limit portions. When  Leanne stayed for dinner, she noticed that Aunt  Betty only served one plate of food, with the  items already measured out on the plate.  No  bowls were set on the table and there were no  seconds.   What do you think of Aunt Betty’s methods?

GOOD NUTRITION AND EXERCISE  Eating enough veggies, fruits, and fiber is one  way to stay healthy. But in our modern society where children and  adults spend most of their waking hours sitting  down in school or at work, it is not enough to eat  the right foods. Exercise is the partner of good nutrition.   Children need 1 to 2 hours of physical exercise  (the kind that creates sweat!) each day. Adults need it, too.  A minimum of 30 minutes a  day of active exercise is needed to keep adults  healthy.

 BECOMING INFORMED  CONSUMERS Today, good nutrition has become an exact science. It  is to everyone’s advantage to become an informed  consumer by reading labels and eating right.  According to the FDA we need to eat more veggies  and fruits, less sugar, less fat (No McDonalds!) fat  reduced milk, little or no added salt, and plenty of  fiber.   We are encouraged to assess everything we purchase  in the grocery store, and even a ten-year-old knows  how to evaluate the labels on their favorite foods. The manufacturers help too, by advertising fat free  foods, 100 calorie packs of cookies and chips, and zero  trans fats foods.

DEVELOPED COUNTRIES AND  NUTRITION In developed countries such as the US, food is  accessible through many agencies and in many forms.   Nobody in the US should starve or be without access  to proper foods.  It is more expensive to eat right than to eat wrong
