As we all know that for our life food is very important it also shows our living standard. For our health we must take balanced food with enough proteins, calcium, fat and minerals all these things are the source of energy but two things which our body require for energy are amino acids and mineral elements our food is also important for breathing specially, we must have proper eating habbits for our good health and must take food on time. Food works in our body as fuel in car, So we must take healthy food for good health. Never take drugs and much junk food it can decrease our energy of body will give many disease as well.

Food is very important to us, without which we would not be able to survive. However, we need to eat healthily and properly for a good health with a good eating habit. I love to eat vegetables most of the time, but I have to admit that sometimes I miss those junk foods. lol.

The quality of food is very important. There are many issues with how foods are produced in the US. Most of the major food companies are only concerned with profits and not the health and well-being of it's customers (if they were concerned, they would not grow food the way they do) and that makes finding and eating healthy food very important. As you mentioned, food works in our body as fuel, so eating a nutritious diet is very important. We try to eat locally grown veggies and fruits and look to buy beef and chicken from farms that feed the animals the proper diets and are not cooped up in a stall for their whole life. I'm hoping the changes in our diets will keep us healthy and benefit my young sons as they grow older.

Food is very important to good health. We have to make sure not to eat alot of unhealthy food though, as it is very bad for our body. We have to make sure to get a balance in our fruits, meats and vegetables.
