Why should I Eat well?
By Mike Gordon
Monica used to love eating nothing but cakes, fizzy drinks, burgers, chips and pizza. Her mum and dad encouraged her to eat other kind of food, but Monica wasn’t interested. That was until she met a girl called Rachel. Rachel liked things like salad. She told Monica all the terrible things that would happen to her if she kept drinking fizzy drinks and eating fatty foods, and never ate fresh fruit and vegetables. Now Monica eats as well as Rachel. She really enjoys eating this way, and just occasionally, she can still have a treat.
Boys and girls discover the importance of eating sensibly and keeping to a balanced diet. They learn that good eating habits are important for health and fitness
