Parents are searching for information about the food pyramid, and also about the popular “Go Glow Grow Foods”, probably because of the homework requirements of their children who are in Grade 2.
Anyway, here’s a quick listing:
Go Foods (provide energy) – Carbohydrates such as sweet potatoes, rice, pasta, bread, breakfast cereal
Grow Foods (build the body’s bones, teeth and muscles) – Protein-rich foods such as chicken, dairy products, eggs, fish, meat, milk, cheese, yogurt, Hunt’s Pork and Beans
Glow Foods (strengthen the immune system) – Veggies (especially the dark green leafy vegetables), and fruits (apples, bananas, mangoes, oranges, suha, watermelon). Vitamin D helps give your skin that beautiful and healthy glow!
