Proteins in food are broken down into pieces that are then used to build new proteins with specific functions, such as generating chemical reactions, quickening communication between different cells, or moving biological molecules from here to there.
With fats, fatty acids, keep our skin soft, deliver fat-soluble vitamins, and are a great source of energizing fuel. But there are good fats and bad fats. trans fats and saturated fats are bad for the body and you should eat as little as possible
So good fats might be found in avocados, fish, and nuts?
Oh so when they say vitamin A or vitamin C on nutrition labels that's what they mean?
Vitamins perform hundreds of roles in the body. They help hold up bones, heal injury's, strengthen your immune system, convert food into energy, repair cell damage, and more.
Yes. All vitamins have different rolls in the body.
So are calcium and iron examples of minerals?

Yes they are
Carbohydrates provide your body with energy. Glucose, fructose, sucrose and lactose are some of the basic examples. I know that you might think that candy has glucose so wouldn't it be healthy. But just because one of the essential nutrients are in a food doesn't mean that it is healthy. You should be eating foods with most to all of the essential nutrients in them.
Oh now I understand what you are talking about. Thanks for helping me!
No problem. Remember eat healthy food!
