Why is nutrition important? How many of us have either put gas into our car or was with someone whoo put gas in their car. The car needs gas in order to work, right? What do you think would happen if you put ice cream in the tank? Or soda? It wouldn't work! Now, Imagine that your body is a car and your stomach is the gas tank. Nutrition means filling your gas tank up with the right gas, so you can work the best, too!

How does good nutrition help you exercise? Eating healthy food can make us feel better, and can help us do better when exercising. Part of nutrition means that you eat good food to have the energy for all these fun exercises. In turn, doing exercise - whether it's in here, in your gym class, or playing sports - will help you stay healthy. The food that we put inside our body can also make us sick. Germs can make us sick right away, but usually only for a short time. However, if you spend a life eating mostly unhealthy food, it will slowly start to make you unhealthy, which can lead to serious health problems. If we eat mostly healthy food, than our bodies will be healthier.
