Staying Healthy - Food (Correct Amounts)
If we eat to much food it is not good for our health!

Staying Healthy - Food (Correct Amounts)

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 diet and the correct amount of food to eat in order to stay healthy.

Food is very important if we want to stay healthy. Eating too little is not good for us. We need enough good food and clean water to grow and to stay healthy. In some parts of the world people don't get the right amount. They are short of food and water. But eating too much is not good for us either. We all need to get the balance right. At school, you have probably learned that people need the right amount of food if they are to stay healthy.
