Tasty!
Why do your favorite foods
taste really good? Because
there are little things on our
tongues called taste buds. The
tongue tastes four flavors-
sweet, sour, salty, and bitter.
Everything you taste is a
combination of these flavors .
There are lots of taste buds on
your tongue!
r
Where Do We ~at?
There are a lot of places where we eat food. In school, at home, at the
park, in restaurants, at the movies. Where is your favorite place to eat?

Breakfast
I always eat breakfast at home. There
are many types of breakfast. My
favorite is pancakes. I put bananas,
butter, and maple syrup on my
pancakes. Mom doesn 't let me eat
them every day. Tina

lunch
I eat lunch in school. It's really tasty
and really healthy. At the weekend, I
go with my family to a restaurant. We
always eat lunch in a restaurant on
Sunday. Sometimes we have a picnic,
too!Kate

ID~nner
Dinner is my favorite meal of the
day. We eat hot dogs sometimes and
sometimes hamburgers, with French
fries! I love French fries. I eat fruit
after. I love apples, too. Miguel

they eat them fried! ·

This is a pufferfish. It can be very


dangerous to eat. They eat this in
Japan. They call itfugu!

Healthy Diets
Healthy eating is very important.
Try not to eat too much sugar. And
when you need a snack, eat fruit
or vegetables not candies,
chocolate, or chips. Try and
eat slower, too, and help your
family to prepare meals. It's
fun!
The picture shows you what you
should eat every day. Grains are
things like bread and rice. Dairy
is things like yogurt and che ese.
Protein is eggs and meat.
