    Vocabulary: eating well


    Feeding oneself and others can be quite a job! 

    To reduce the risks of diseases, we should consume healthy food, and educate our childtren

     to do so too. Sugar (confectionary, soft drinks and sodas), fat and alcohol are enemies to people's health. They should be avoided.

    Unfortunately, most foods with the "best" tastes are not necessarily the healthiest ones and most people have to fight all their lives to keep their dietary balance!

    We should always eat proteins, carbohydrates (starchy food), a limited quantity of fat, 

    vegetables (raw or cooked to repletion) a dairy product and a fruit...

    - to eat sensibly

    - A low/ high calorie diet

     To feed oneself on something

    In all cases, QUANTITY is important too. Obviously, we shouldn't forget to EXERCISE on a regular basis too... It can even be fun !
