We need to keep topping up our fuel levels, otherwise we run out of energy. 3. The body gets its fuel (energy) from nutrients that can be found in food and drinks. 4. Nutrients help to provide the body with the fuel it needs to work properly and to stay healthy. 5. The body also needs water. Water is not a nutrient but it’s important that we keep our water levels topped up, just like a car. 6. Tony: But where do we find these nutri…ents, nutrients – and how do they help my body? 7. SHOW WHEEL. Food can be divided into different groups. We need to eat from each of the groups to stay healthy. Food also gives the body the energy it needs for all growth and repair of our body, normal body functions like our heartbeat, breathing, and for activities such as walking, riding a bike, skateboarding or playing football. 8. It is important that we eat the right amounts of food from each of the groups. It’s a bit like building blocks – we have to balance the blocks carefully to make sure we get the correct nutrients, otherwise the body will not work properly. 9. POINT TO THE WHEEL. The biggest proportion of our food should come from bread, potatoes and cereal, and fruit and vegetables. Milk and diary foods, and meat, fish or alternatives should follow this.
