Your 5 nutrition terms for the week!! 


Hey friendly folks!! I thought it would be fun for every Friday we go over 5 nutrition terms!! Let me know what you think about this in the comment box below!! 

Nutrient Dense Food: Higher quantity of food and nutrients for few/little calories. Ex.) kale, strawberries, raspberries, spinach, and many more. 

Organic Foods: food that has been grown or raised without pesticides, antibiotics, and hormones. 

Glucose: a component in carbohydrates, is also a simple sugar, and is used as the energy source for the body. 

Insulin: a hormone, that is used to help glucose get through the cells, to enter the blood. Created in the pancreas. 

Dietary Reference Intake (DRI): a reference and guide, to tell you how much nutrients you should be consuming daily for a healthy diet. 

Thanks guys!!
