Food as a source of energy

Different types of food

We take different types of food energy day. Different kinds of foods have different needs to serve. Some types of food provide energy, some provide vitamins and proteins and some provide minerals us. Wheat, rice, maize, Jowar, bajra, barely are called cereals. They provide us energy. Other sources of energy giving food are- sugar, potato, fats, butter, ghee etc.

Fish, meat, eggs, milk, pulse, nuts, and soybeans are rich in proteins.

We require them for the growth of the body.

The foods which help the body to prevent the diseases should be rich in vitamins and minerals. These foods are called protective foods. Examples of protective foods are banana, orange, guava, carrot, cucumber, lady’s finger, spinach, tomato, fruits, green vegetables, milk etc.

Milk is a complete food. It helps us grow and gives energy. Water is also necessary as it helps to clean kidneys and to purify the blood.

Cooking of food
