Staying Healthy - Food (Balanced Diet)
To stay healthy we should eat lots of different types of food, including vegetables!

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.

Do you eat just one type of food? No - even if you have a favourite food, you will need to eat other things as well if you want to stay healthy. 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?
