One of the key features of our science topic packs is using the glossary of keywords and terms. This is a vital tool to ensure that pupils recognise and understand the keywords associated with each topic BEFORE they start learning about the specific topic. This way, they can focus on the processes rather than struggling with keywords, and learning will be both more effective and less stressful for them.

What makes a balanced diet, and why is it essential for good health
Nutrients and why they are needed

About Food & Digestion
A balanced diet includes various food types in the right proportions to provide all the necessary nutrients for good health. A balanced diet typically contains carbohydrates, proteins, fats, vitamins, minerals, and fibre.

Carbohydrates provide energy for the body, while proteins are essential for the growth and repair of tissues. Fats are important for maintaining healthy skin, hair, and nerves and also help absorb certain vitamins. Vitamins and minerals help the body function properly, while fibre helps regulate digestion and maintain healthy bowel function.

Different food types include:

Carbohydrates: bread, pasta, rice, fruits, and vegetables
Proteins: meat, poultry, fish, dairy products, eggs, and beans
Fats: oils, butter, and nuts
Vitamins: found in fruits, vegetables, and dairy products
Minerals: found in meat, poultry, fish, dairy products, and leafy green vegetables
Fibre: found in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and legumes
Good health depends on a balanced diet, as a lack of essential nutrients can lead to various health problems, including weakness, fatigue, and a weakened immune system. On the other hand, consuming too much of certain types of foods, such as unhealthy fats or sugar, can also lead to health problems, such as obesity, heart disease, and type 2 diabetes.

The body stores energy from food through glycogen, which is stored in the liver and muscles. When energy is needed, the body breaks down the glycogen into glucose and releases it into the bloodstream. If the body needs more energy than is available from glycogen, it will break down fat stores to provide the necessary energy.
