Your body needs energy to work normally and keep you alive. You obtain this energy from nutrients in the food that you eat – mostly, carbohydrates, fats and proteins. Minerals and vitamins are other nutrients that are also important in your diet to help your body stay healthy.
A balanced diet generally contains food from each of the following food groups: • Starchy foods such as bread, rice, potatoes, pasta, etc. | • Fruit and vegetables. | • Milk and dairy foods. | • Protein foods. These include meat, fish, eggs and other non-dairy sources of protein (including nuts, tofu, beans, pulses, etc).
