- Tell the learners that in the previous activity, we investigated the different types of food that we need to eat on a daily basis to have a balanced diet. We need to understand the importance of the different types of food we eat.
- Present an overview of the different types (and amounts) of food that we need to eat to have a balanced diet by using PRESENTATION 1: Balanced Diet
- Show VIDEO CLIP 3: A Balanced Diet (5:40 min.).
In this video the learners will learn about a balanced diet. A diet, which contains all the nutrients, namely carbohydrates, proteins, vitamins, minerals and fats in right amounts, is called a balanced diet. It should also contain sufficient amounts of dietary fibre and water.
- Ask learners if they think that they have a balanced diet. Tell them that they are going to evaluate their diets to find out if this is the case.
