LESSON 6 Growing Up Fit Together for 1 st grade
Snacks • Today we will talk about a few myths about snacks. • Does anybody know what a myth is? • A myth is something that is not true.
Myth #1: Snacks Should Never Be Eaten • Young children do need snacks, especially when they are active. • Good snacks help give your body a “boost” between meals. • You should not eat so many snacks that you would not eat your regular meals. • It’s not good to eat ONLY snacks.
Myth #2: Snacks Should Never Be Eaten Between Meals • Snacks between meals or after school can be perfectly healthy and good for you. • Your stomach is smaller than an adults so you need to eat more often during the day.
Myth #3: Snacking is the Same as Eating “Junk” Food • Snacking does not have to be junk food. • For example, a healthy snack you could eat is an apple with a piece of string cheese. • Can you think of other healthy snacks?
Myth #4: Healthy Snacks Mean I Can Never Eat Candy • You can have candy bars, but it is not good to eat only those types of foods as snacks. • You can have those types of snacks every now and then since they are not really healthy for you.
Myth #5: Snacking Causes Cavities • Just because they are snacks, does not mean that they cause cavities. • Sugary snacks are not good for you. • If you brush your teeth after eating sugary snacks, you should not get cavities.
Myth #6: Snacks Will Make You Overweight • Snacks eaten during the day between your regular meals will NOT make you overweight. • The amount of snacks and the kind of snacks can make a difference.
Myth #7: If You Eat Snacks, You Will Ruin Your Appetite • If snacks are eaten between meals to give you energy then they will not ruin your appetite. • Also if the snacks are healthy, they will not ruin your appetite.
