Healthy Eating Through My Day
By Caitlin Hoge and Claire Boylson

When I wake up, I eat a healthy breakfast (petit dejeuner) to start my day!

This morning, I decide to eat a bowl of healthy cereal and a banana.

Bananas (bananes) have lots of good nutrients for me.

I bought my lunch (dejeuner) at school today.

I decide to eat a turkey sandwich and a salad (salade).

I also decide to drink a glass of milk (lait) because it helps keep my bones strong!

After I get home from school, I eat a fresh vegetable snack (gouter).

After I played outside and did my homework, it was time for dinner (diner)!

My mom asked me if I wanted waffles or chicken (poulet).

I chose chicken because it has lots of protein (proteine).

Protein helps keep my muscles strong (fort)!

I asked for some more vegetables (legumes), because they are full of good nutrients.

For dessert, I chose to have a cookie (biscuit) and some milk.

It’s okay to have treats (plaisirs) every once in a while - and milk is always a good choice for a snack!

I always try to make good food choices (choix) when I am eating.
