Knowledge and Skills #15 The student analyzes basic nutrition needs and results of dietary practices.:  Knowledge and Skills #15 The student analyzes basic nutrition needs and results of dietary practices. Slide3:  A list classifications, sources, and functions of nutrients B compare personal diets to various guidelines C explain the effects of the life cycle, illness, and disease on individual dietary needs D analyze the problems and characteristics associated with eating disorders Slide4:  E discuss the effects of dietary practices on wellness and achievement. F apply nutrition principles related to individual and family health decisions. G determine cultural, economic, and societal influences on dietary practices and contemporary meal management. Slide5:  H. Analyze nutrition information on food labels. Slide7:  ….how food nourishes the body and is the foundation for good health. Slide8:  Based on scientific data of the nutrients needed to ensure adequate nutrition for people in the U.S. A set of nutrient standards established for the maintenance of good nutrition Based on the energy and nutrients that are needed for good health and that reduce the risk of chronic disease. Slide9:  Knowledge related to nutrition and health has increased dramatically. New knowledge includes findings that show the interrelationships of: Diet Nutrition Many chronic diseases EAR/UL Slide11:  Carbohydrates-body’s main source of energy Fats-a concentrated source of energy Proteins-Nutrients that help build, repair, and maintain body tissues Vitamins-Chemicals that help regulate many vital body processes and aid other nutrients in doing their job Minerals-non-living substances that help the body work properly and sometimes become part of body tissues Water-Is a nutrient because it is essential to life Slide12:  Life – sustaining chemical substances that nourish and promote the growth of the human body. No one food contains all of the nutrients necessary for the body to function effectively. A balanced diet that incorporates appropriate amounts of the six essential nutrients, as well as recommended servings from the food groups, is necessary. Individuals should choose foods of high nutrient density rather than foods with empty calories Slide13:  Foods that are excellent sources of essential nutrients with few, if any, empty calories. Slide14:  Foods that provide calories or energy but little or no nutritive value. Slide15:  What requires energy? Your body get energy from carbohydrates, as well as protein and fat. Kilocalories also know as calories is the amount of energy needed to raise the temperature of 1 kilogram of water 1 degree celsius. 2,800 calories-teen males, active men and some very active women. 2,200 calories for most children, teen females, active women, and inactive men. 1,600-calroies for many inactive women and most older adults Slide18:  Is the main component of every cell in the human body Performs 3 important functions—Body uses protein for the following: Growth and repair of new and damaged tissues. Regulating all body functions, and transporting other nutrients and oxygen throughout the body Supplying energy when adequate amounts are not supplied by carbohydrates and fats. Slide19:  Comprised of compounds called amino acids. Amino acids often referred to the building blocks of protein. 22 different amino acids. 13 of these are manufactured in the body, Remaining 9 must be supplied by the diet. The body can not function without these 9 essential amino acids. Slide20:  The body cannot function without these 9 essential amino acids. 2. essential amino acids- essential that they be furnished by the diet Slide21:  Protein foods that supply all nine of the essential amino acids are called complete proteins. Slide25:  Average American adult eats twice as much protein as is needed Recommended that 10-15% of calories come from protein for most children and adults. Protein needs increase during time of growth: Childhood Adolescence Pregnancy Lactation Consult RDA for gender/age guidelines Slide27:  Nutrients that supply energy for body functions. 2. 50-55% of calories should come from complex carbohydrates 3. Carbohydrates are broken down in the body into: Sugars Starches fiber Slide28:  SUGARS Slide29:  MONOSACCHARIDES SIMPLEST FORM OF CARBOHYDRATES GLUCOSE, GALACTOSE , AND FRUCTOSE Sugars and starches are broken down in the body into the simple sugar GLUCOSE. The major sugar found in the bloodstream and supplies energy for the body. FRUCTOSE – found in honey/fruits Known as the sweetest of the sugars. GALACTOSE- not found in nature, but is one of the two MONOSACCHARIDES available after the breakdown of lactose (milk sugar) Slide30:  Formed when two glucose molecules are joined together Broken down into MONOSACCHARIDES during digestion Sucrose, maltose, and lactose Sucrose- found in white refined table sugar,brown sugar,confectioner’s sugar, cane sugar, beet sugar, molasses, and maple syrup Maltose-malt sugar which is found in sprouting cereal grains. Lactose is ? sugar and found only in ? Slide32:  POLYSACCHARIDES Starch cellulose glycogen Slide33:  Starch Most abundant polysaccharide Found in roots, legumes, grains, vegetables Must be broken down into glucose by the body before it can be utilized. Slide34:  Cellulose- fibrous material found in plants Fiber/roughage Cannot be digested by humans Sources: vegetables, fruits whole grain cereals Slide35:  Known as animal starch Is the storage form of carbohydrates found in the liver and muscles In liver – easily broken down into blood glucose Muscle glycogen supplies glucose for muscle use (especially important during periods of intense exercise) Slide36:  SUPPLY ENERGY SUPPLY FIBER AID IN THE DIGESTION OF FATS Slide38:  Organic compounds necessary for: normal growth maintenance of health, Reproduction Help the body convert carbohydrates and fat into energy an Assist in the formation of bones and tissues Essential for maintaining good health as the body cannot survive without them Slide39:  Cannot be dissolved in water so..
