3 Nutrition Understanding Foods Carbohydrates Carbohydrates are found in fruits, vegetables and grains (such as breads, cereal, oatmeal, pasta, and anything made with flour - cookies, muffins, bagels, crackers, tortillas, etc.) Whole grains (whole wheat bread, brown rice, oatmeal) have a higher nutritional value than refined grains (white bread, white rice, baked goods made with white flour). Most refined grains are enriched with the B vitamins and iron (that were removed during refinement) added back in. The USDA recommends that at least 50% of all grains eaten be whole grains. Eating carbohydrates is important for providing the body s energy fuel for your muscles and brain functions. Eating carbohydrates is essential for critical thinking in school or at work and any kind of manual labor that coordinates thought and movement (everything). About 50% of the food you eat each day should be carbohydrates. This amount is different for boys and girls and by age and exercise. The USDA recommends the following amounts to be eaten daily for low exercise individuals: 3 ounces Women (to 50) 8 ounces 8 ounces 7 ounces Examples of common carbohydrate servings in ounces: 1 slice bread = 1 cup cereal flakes = popcorn = 1/2 cup cooked rice or oatmeal = 1 ounce carbohydrate 1 cup cooked pasta = 1 cup cooked rice = 1 cup cooked oatmeal = 2 ounces carbohydrate 1 large bagel = 1 large 12 flour tortilla = 4 ounces carbohydrate

4 Nutrition Understanding Foods Grains Grains include wheat, rye, oats, rice, cornmeal, etc. They make up the following foods: flour, bread, pasta, cereal, tortillas, and baked goods of all kinds. Whole grains (whole wheat bread, brown rice, oatmeal) have a higher nutritional value than refined grains (white bread, white rice, baked goods made with white flour). Most refined grains are enriched with the B vitamins and iron (that were removed during refinement) added back in. The USDA recommends that at least 50% of all grains eaten be whole grains. Eating grain, which is a carbohydrate, is important for providing the body s energy fuel for your muscles and brain functions. This is an important food for critical thinking in school or at work and any kind of manual labor that coordinates thought and movement (everything). About 50% of the food you eat each day should be grains, fruits and vegetables. This amount is different for boys and girls and by age and exercise. The USDA recommends the following amount of grains to be eaten daily for low exercise individuals: 3 ounces Women (to 50) 8 ounces 8 ounces 7 ounces Examples of common grain servings in ounces: 1 slice bread = 1 cup cereal flakes = popcorn = 1/2 cup cooked rice or oatmeal = 1 ounce carbohydrate 1 cup cooked pasta = 1 cup cooked rice = 1 cup cooked oatmeal = 2 ounces carbohydrate 1 large bagel = 1 large 12 flour tortilla = 4 ounces carbohydrate

5 Nutrition Understanding Foods Fruits (Carbohydrate) Fruits include melons, berries, 100% fruit juices and the common fruits you may know from childhood, apples, pears, bananas, oranges, pineapples, peaches, cherries, etc. Even dried fruits, such as prunes and raisins, are included in this category. Fruits provide nutrients that are vital for biological function, such as vitamin C, potassium, folate and fiber. Fiber helps us keep a healthy low blood pressure and cholesterol, lowering heart disease risks. Vitamin C is important for growth and repair of tissues and healthy teeth and gums, while folate helps form new red blood cells. This amount is different for boys and girls and by age and exercise. The USDA recommends the following amounts to be eaten daily for low exercise individuals: 1 cup 1- Women (31-50) Examples of common fruit servings in cups: 1 small apple = 1 cup applesauce = 1 banana = 1 cup grapes = 1 orange/peach/pear = 1 cup fruit 1 cup melon/pineapple/strawberries = 1 cup 100% fruit juice = 1/2 cup dried fruit = 1 cup fruit

6 Nutrition Understanding Foods Vegetables (Carbohydrate) Vegetables include dark green vegetables (spinach, kale, broccoli), starchy vegetables (corn, peas, potatoes), red and orange vegetables (tomatoes, sweet peppers, carrots, squash, sweet potatoes), beans and peas, and other vegetables (cabbage, avocados, asparagus, green beans, zucchini, etc.). Vegetables provide nutrients that are vital for biological function, such as vitamin C and A, potassium, folate and fiber. Fiber helps us keep a healthy low blood pressure and cholesterol, lowering heart disease risks. Vitamin C is important for growth and repair of tissues and healthy teeth and gums, while folate helps form new red blood cells (and iron absorption). Vitamin A maintains healthy skin and eyes and helps prevent infections. This amount is different for boys and girls and by age and exercise. The USDA recommends the following amounts to be eaten daily for low exercise individuals: 1 cup Women (31-50) Examples of common vegetable servings in cups: 1 cup broccoli/cooked greens/carrots/tomatoes/squash/peppers/beans/peas/corn/potato/cabbage/cauliflower/ cucumbers/ green beans/zucchini = 1 cup vegetables

7 Nutrition Understanding Foods Proteins Protein is found in red meat, poultry, fish, seafood, eggs, greek yogurt, nuts, seeds, beans and soy products (such as tofu). Eating protein is important because when protein is digested, it is broken down into amino acids, which are used by the body to fuel growth and repair of tissues (i.e. muscle, skin, organs, bones, etc.) About 20% of the food you eat each day should be protein. For a teenager this is about 50 grams per day. This amount is different for boys and girls and by age and exercise. The USDA recommends the following amounts to be eaten daily for low exercise individuals: 2 ounces 4 ounces Women (31-50) 5. Examples of common protein servings in ounces: 3 egg yolks = 1 ounce lean beef/pork/ham/cooked fish/chicken/turkey = 1 egg = 1 ounce protein 1 cup split pea/lentil/bean soup = 1 ounce nuts and seeds = 3 egg whites = 1 soy burger = 2 ounces protein 1 can tuna = 1 salmon steak = 1 trout = 4 ounces protein How the food is prepared affects its nutritional value. Deep fat fried meats have a much higher saturated fat content than grilled, poached or baked. Also some cuts of meat are fattier than others as well. Processed meats and salted nuts have a much higher sodium content.

8 Nutrition Understanding Foods Dairy Dairy includes all fluid milk products. Foods made from milk (cheese, yogurt, ice cream, etc.) are only considered part dairy (they are also part fat) and the USDA recommends consuming low fat or non-fat dairy selections. Some foods made from milk (butter, cream, cream cheese) have little or no calcium and should not be considered dairy selections. Some not dairy foods, like soy milk, are calcium fortified so can be used as a dairy selections. Consuming dairy products provides calcium, potassium, vitamin D, and protein for the body. These are vital for the growth, development and repair of bones and teeth, heart health and other biological process (like muscle contractions). How Much Do You Need to Eat/Drink Each Day? This amount is different for boys and girls and by age and exercise. The USDA recommends the following amounts to be consumed daily for low exercise individuals: Women (31-50) Examples of common dairy servings in cups: 1 cup milk = 1 cup (calcium fortified) soy milk = 1 cup low-fat yogurt = 1 cup dairy 1.5 oz. cheese = 2 oz. processed cheese = 1/3 cup grated cheese = low-fat cottage cheese = 1 cup dairy 1 cup low-fat pudding (made with milk) = low-fat ice cream = 1 cup low-fat frozen yogurt = 1 cup dairy

9 Nutrition Understanding Foods Fats (Oil) Oils are fats that stay in liquid form at room temperature. Most are low in saturated fats. They are found in seeds, nuts, oils from foods like peanut butter, walnuts, almonds, fish, etc. Oils that are solid at room temperature (butter and margarine) are solid fats. They come from animal fats or hydrogenated vegetable oils. These saturated fats are found in processed foods, such as cookies, ice cream, crackers, chips, should be eaten very sparingly. Eating unsaturated fats is important for growth and development, energy and absorption of fat-soluble vitamins needed by the body (vitamin A, D, E, K). About 30% of the food you eat each day should be fats. This amount is different for boys and girls and by age and exercise. The USDA recommends the following amounts to be eaten daily for low exercise individuals: 3 teaspoons 4 teaspoons Women (31-50) 5 teaspoons 5 teaspoons 6 teaspoons 5 teaspoons 5 teaspoons 5 teaspoons 6 teaspoons 7 teaspoons 6 teaspoons 6 teaspoons Examples of common oil servings in teaspoons: 1 tablespoon vegetable oil from canola/corn/olive/peanut/soybean/ safflower = 1 tablespoon oil = 120 calories 1 tablespoon mayonnaise/ margarine = 2.5 teaspoons oil = 100 calories 1 ounce roasted peanuts/cashews/almonds/sunflower seeds = 1 tablespoon oil = calories 1/2 avocado = 1 tablespoon oil = 160 calories 2 tablespoons peanut butter = 4 teaspoons oil = 190 calories 2 tablespoons Italian dressing = 2 teaspoons oil = 85 calories 2 tablespoons thousand island dressing = 2.5 teaspoons oil = 120 calories

10 Nutrition Understanding Foods Vitamins: Calcium Calcium is found in milk products (milk, yogurt, ice cream, cheese) and calcium fortified foods. Growing teens should consume about 1,300 mg of calcium per day. Consuming calcium is important for bone development, muscle contraction, blood clotting and many other essential body functions. Iron Iron is found in red meat, green leafy vegetables (like spinach), and fortified foods (cereal, juices). Growing teens should consume about 15 mg per day. Consuming iron is important for developing muscle and blood. Calories The calories you consume from the foods you eat provide energy for movement and bodily functions (such as digestion and breathing). Teenagers are growing and developing and need to consume between 2,000-3,000 calories a day, depending on the amount of physical activity they are doing.
