Our brain commands our nervous system and the way we behave. To keep it healthy we should eat green vegetables, oily fish and carbohydrates like cereals, bread and pasta.
The muscles are very important because they control our movements. Muscles need food that is high in protein, like meat, fish and eggs.
Bones give our bodies the support they need. To keep them healthy we should eat dairy products, including milk, cheese and yogurt.
Our skin protects our bodies and gives us our sense of touch. To keep it healthy we should eat a lot of fruit and vegetables as well as nuts, cereals and oily fish.
The eyes are the body’s camera. The light passes through the lens and the eye then ‘records’ a picture on the back part, called the retina. The retina sends a message to the brain and the brain tells you what you actually see. For healthy eyes we should eat food with lots of vitamins, like carrots, spinach, oranges, kiwi fruit and tomatoes.
The heart pumps about 70 millilitres of blood around our bodies with each beat. That’s about 1,900 gallons of blood per day! Green vegetables like spinach, olive oil and oily fish, nuts and oats are all good for the heart.
Healthy hair needs foods like beans, chicken, eggs and nuts. They provide proteins and minerals to keep our hair shiny and strong. It protects our head from extremes of heat and cold.
