Animals and Me

Food Groups

In our first lesson we looked at how different animals need different foods to keep their bodies healthy and to give them energy. We learnt that animals are generally split into three groups depending on the foods they eat:

  • Herbivores: eat only plants. For example, rabbits and goats.
  • Omnivores: eat both plants and animal products. For example, us humans!
  • Carnivores: eat only meat / animal products. For example, sharks and tigers. 


We then looked at the different food groups us humans need to keep our bodies healthy. They are:

  • Carbohydrates / Starchy Foods.
  • Protein.
  • Fruit and Vegetables.
  • Dairy Products.
  • Fatty and Sugary Foods.

We understand that these different foods help to keep our bodies healthy in different ways.


Then, we investigated sugar levels in different drinks. We discussed how foods and drinks with a lot of sugar in can be bad for us if we eat or drink them too often because if the sugar isn't used as energy straight away it is stored in our body as fat. 


We found (unsurprisingly) that Coca Cola contains most sugar, with a whopping 10.5g of sugar per 100ml. That's two teaspoons of sugar per 100ml! 

We have been looking at diets both human and animal. We made bird feeders when looking at what different birds might eat.
