Why do people have to eat?
The body needs energy to play, think, work, play sports and even sleep. He gets this energy from the nutrients that the food contains. The most important nutrients are sugar and starch (they are also called "carbohydrates"), fats and proteins, vitamins and minerals. All of these nutrients are necessary for your muscles, your brain, your organs to grow and work.
Why do people have to drink?
Water is also vital. Your young body is made up of 70 percent water. Your cells, your brain, and your bloodstream all need lots of water. When breathing, sweating and using the toilet, the body excretes fluids. So it's no wonder it's important that you drink enough. When you are thirsty, your body shows you that it needs water.
