     NUTRITION
  What Are Some of Our Nutritional Needs?
Strong bones give us a 
sturdy structure.
Red blood cells carry oxygen to all of the 50 trillion cells
in your body.
We need our muscles to move. Your heart is a muscle.
What Happens When We Don't Get Enough Nutrients?
Not enough calcium?
Not enough iron?
Not enough Magnesium?
Where Is Our Nutrient Supply?
What Threatens Our Nutrition?
Choices.
Plants can't grow without water from rain.
When forests are cut down, erosion washes the nutrients away.
When flash flooding occurs, erosion washes the nutrients away.

   Nutrition = Food that is needed for health and growth.
   BONES, BLOOD CELLS & MUSCLES NEED PROPER NUTRITION TO WORK WELL
Calcium, magnesium and iron are needed for strong bones.
Iron is essential for building your red blood cells.
Magnesium is important 
for muscles.
WEAK BONES, TIREDNESS & WEAK MUSCLES
Your bones won't be strong. 
This is a problem that will catch up with you later in life.
You may be anemic, have  impaired immune functions,
or be tired.
Your heart and other muscles needs magnesium. 
They won't work well without it.
CHOICES, DROUGHT & EROSION
Processed foods are convenient but don't deliver the nutrients like fresh food.
