Grain Chain Episode 9: Energy

What foods are good sources of energy?

We’ve got loads of Fun Kids podcast series about energy – but that’s all the electrical kind!

Did you know people also use energy? It doesn’t smell or taste of anything but we all run on it. It’s like our own personal petrol!

Like a car, we need to keep topping ourselves up with fuel to run. We use food and drink as our fuel and we burn through it at different rates.

Not all fuels are created equally. Some food releases its energy slowly as we digest it, whilst other foods are really good at giving us quick jolts of energy!

Something like bread is low in fat and sugar and is stacked full of fibre. It’s also got loads of proteins and vitamins inside it.

Some bread has vitamins put into it – that’s called fortified bread!
