First-graders at Galvez Primary School learned about the importance of eating nutritious foods during a recent unit on the human body, teacher Ashley Whitcom said.

The students learned that the human body is a network of five systems that work together to keep it healthy and alive, Whitcomb said.

The students studied the role nutritious foods have in keeping the body healthy and strong. They learned how to create a balanced diet with nutritious foods. The students were able to make juice from fruits and vegetables.

The first-graders enjoyed tasting the juice and discussing the five keys to health with their classmates, she said.
