Nutrition Description - Studying What We Eat

Nutrition is the process of getting food into your body and using it as raw materials for growth, fuel for energy, and vitamins and minerals that keep your body healthy and functioning properly. Macronutrients - Carbohydrates, Fats, and Protein The foods you eat provide the energy your body needs to function. Just like you need to put fuel in your car or recharge your cell phone battery, your body needs to be fed energy-providing foods every day. Carbohydrates are broken down into individual glucose, fructose or galactose units. Protein comes from the foods you eat and is broken down into individual amino acids.

Your body also needs fats to be healthy. Micronutrients - Vitamins and Minerals The vitamins and minerals you get from your diet are just as important as carbohydrates, protein and fats, even though you only need them in small amounts. They usually function as co-enzymes, which means they help some of your body's chemical reactions happen a lot faster. Kids Home Page. Kidnetic. What's that you say?
