Staying Healthy - Food (Balanced Diet)

This quiz addresses the requirements of the National Curriculum KS1 Science for children aged 5 and 6 in years 1 and 2. Specifically this quiz is aimed at the section dealing with staying healthy by eating a balanced diet and different types of food.

When looking at staying healthy in school you have probably learned that people need a balanced diet - they need to eat a variety of different foods. What have you found out about a balanced diet?
