The Human Body and Nutrition Part 1 of 3
The Skeletal and Muscular Systems
1. The food pyramid is the daily food guide recommended by the USDA. The guide shows us what foods we need each day and in what proportions.
2. We need the right amounts of good food to keep our bodies healthy so we are able to play and work at our best.
3. Some stripes on the pyramid are wider than others. The different sizes remind you to choose more food from the food groups with the wider stripes.
4. If we eat healthy and exercise regularly, our organs and body systems will work to the best of their abilities.
4. Organs are body parts that do particular jobs.
5. Groups of organs that work together form systems.
6. The main parts of the skeletal system are the bones and joints.
7. The job of the skeletal system is to support the body, protect organs, and help body parts move.
8. Bones give your body shape.
9. Your bones meet at joints. Some joints open and close as the hinge of a door does. Your knees work this way.
10. Other joints let a bone move in many directions. Your shoulder works this way.
11. Calcium helps bones grow and makes them strong. Dairy products like milk, cheese, and yogurt contain calcium.
12. The main parts of the muscular system are striated, smooth, and cardiac muscles.
13. The job of the muscular system is to move body parts.
14. Cardiac muscles work automatically-without you thinking about it.
15. Exercise makes your muscles stronger and larger. You can swim, walk the dog, play sports, ride your bike, or even climb stairs.
16. Carbohydrates provide your body with energy. The best sources of carbohydrates—whole grains, vegetables, fruits and beans—promote good health by delivering vitamins, minerals, fiber, and a host of important nutrients.
17. Warming up by moving all your big muscles for five to ten minutes before you exercise helps prevent injury or pain.
18. The fact on “fats” is: we all need fats. Fat helps nutrient absorptions well as many other things.
However, when consumed in excessive amount, fats contribute to weight gain, heart disease and certain types of cancer. The key is to replace bad fats with good fats in our diet.
• Good fats are found in foods such as: nuts and olive oil
• Bad fats are often found in packaged foods or foods fried in vegetable oils; such as: French fries and bacon
