Abstract:
Abstract: Historical and nutritional aspects of food are presented for children. Informing people about ways to grow and prepare food will enable them to make better use of these products. The discovery of farming enabled people to grow crops and raise and domesticate livestock. A healthy diet consists of cereals, milk products, fruits and vegetables, and meats. Ways to save money while shopping forfood include using coupons and buying seasonal products. Foods provide such nutrients as vitamins and minerals. Factors influencing food preferences range from weather to cultural beliefs. Although farming methods will improve, food will probably not change much in the future. Recipes for each of the food groups are included.
