This KS1 PSHE quiz will ask you questions about food groups. It is important that we eat a balanced diet to keep ourselves healthy and prevent illness. A balanced diet consists of the 5 food groups:

  • Fruit and vegetables
  • Carbohydrates
  • Fats and oils
  • Dairy produce
  • Protein

This quiz will help you learn why each food group is important and which group your favourite foods belong to.
