I would like to talk a little about the importance of Nutrition. Nutrition is any substance that is digested absorbed and utilized to promote the body’s functions. The main substances are carbohydrates, proteins, fats, vitamins, mineral salts and water. Carbohydrates are found in potatoes, bread, pasta, cereals, fruits etc. It gives energy. But one should consider according to their age, type of work, activities, to see how much one should take. If some one is diabetic, he or she has to check with their Doctor how much they are allowed.

First class proteins are meat, milk, dairy products, fish, eggs, soya beans etc. Second class proteins are beans, peas, lentils etc. What do proteins do for us? They provide growth and repair of body cells and tissues. One of the important vitamins that we should have is Vitamin A which is found in egg yolk. Other important foods are liver, fish, oil, milk, cheese and butter, green vegetables, fruits and carrots etc. The deficiencies of Vitamin A are night blindness, drying and ulceration of cornea.
