Carbohydrates are our body’s primary source of energy and are found in foods such as bread, rice, pasta, and fruits. Proteins are important for growth and repair and can be found in foods such as meat, fish, eggs, and legumes. Fats are also essential, providing energy and helping to absorb fat-soluble vitamins . Good sources of healthy fats include nuts, seeds, and oily fish. Vitamins and minerals are essential for many functions in the body, such as the production of red blood cells and the maintenance of healthy skin and bones. They can be found in a variety of foods, including fruits and vegetables, dairy products, and fortified cereals.
