Energy Ball

We focused on three nutrients today and the energy we get from them:
Fats, Carbohydrates and Protein

We know that fats provide us with a lot of energy.
We know that Carbohydrates are quick energy.
We know that Proteins repair muscle and other tissues.

Each provide us with a different amount of energy.
Fats- 9 units of energy per gram.
Carbohydrates-4 units of energy per gram.
Proteins- 4 units of energy per gram.

We will be continuing on with the nutrients and identifying the foods that provide the body with each of these nutrients!
