The amount of anything that you eat is most important. Calories are how we measure how much we eat. We don’t want too much or too little. The right amount is different for adults and children.
Tracking the amount of calories you take in is a way to track how much you eat. The amount of calories you consume in a single beverage or food item can be found in the Nutrition Facts Label. It’s important to understand how much you’re eating instead of not tracking because without tracking you could easily eat too much. This is unhealthy! Be sure to eat only the amount you are recommended to stay healthy and strong!
Most everyone knows sodas and fast food aren’t healthy. We want all children to get the nutrients they need to grow up strong and healthy. However, does that mean you can never eat chicken nuggets ever again? No!
There is something called moderation. This means not a lot! If you want candy all the time, does this mean you should eat candy all the time? No! Maybe it’s okay to eat it every once in a while but candy shouldn’t be eaten all the time. It’s the same with unhealthy foods like french fries. Moderating your intake will not impact you as heavily as eating it everyday does.
So do you have to give up junk food forever? No, not right away. You can still eat it in moderation. Everything we do should be done in moderation; there are few things that are good for us in excess but eating is not one of them!
Allergies are one of the most common chronic diseases. A chronic disease lasts a long time or occurs often. An allergy occurs when the body’s immune system sees a substance as harmful and overreacts to it. The substances that cause allergic reactions are allergens. When someone has allergies, their immune system makes an antibody called immunoglobulin E (IgE). These antibodies respond to allergens. The symptoms that result are an allergic reaction.
