WHY FOOD MATTERS
Food is the fuel that runs our bodies. We say that we are what we eat, but that doesn’t mean that we turn into the food. It means we take the nutrients out of the food, just like we take wood out of trees. We use wood to build houses, and we use food to build ourselves. So choosing food well is important. It affects how healthy we are.
