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!
