    Nutrition keeps your body healthy, to keep your body healthy you need to keep it safe. These are how these concepts are interconnected. Nutrition for the child is different than and adult. They need more of some nutrients than adults and less of some others than adults. There should be a diagram on a child's food pyramid on the internet and print that out then compare it to an adult food pyramid and see how the serving amounts differ. Children also need to learn the difference between good food and bad food. They need to know that good foods can taste just as good as bad food and be fun to make like ants on a log or ladybug apple snacks, but they also need to know that bad food occasionally is ok, just not in large amounts. Hope this helps.
