Good nutrition should include eating three meals a day and two nutritious snacks.  Try to limit high-sugar and high-fat foods.  Make sure you get the right amounts of fruits, veggies, lean meats, and dairy products every day.

Here are a few tips to keep you healthy:

1. Eat a variety of food.
2. Eat plenty of fruit and vegetables.
3. Don’t eat foods with lots of added sugar or foods high in salt.
4. Decrease fast food, juice, and soda.
5. Get a lot of exercise.

Why water is important for kids
Eating healthy food is important, and so is drinking water.  Water does not have any nutrients, but it is important for your health.  Water makes up more than half of your body weight and it is needed to keep all parts of your body functioning properly.  It helps digest your food and it is important for blood circulation.  So make sure you drink lots of water.
