Broadly there are four food groups you must focus on to fulfil your daily nutritional requirements. Grains and cereals including rice, wheat, millets, barley, oats, pulses and legumes are proven to be highly nutritious foods when had in proper proportions. Vegetables are the second food group. They are packed with fiber, vitamins and minerals, all of which are essential for the body’s growth and development. Vitamins and minerals also help your immune system to fight against several disorders. Cabbage, carrots, pumpkins, beans, potatoes, mushrooms, cauliflower, tomatoes, and onions are examples of vegetables rich in vitamin A, C, K and D, potassium, calcium, magnesium, fiber, iron and sodium. Dairy products (milk, yogurt, cheese, etc.) constitute the third group that provide calcium and protein to the body, helping to build muscle and strengthen bones. Lastly, the meat group (fish, eggs, chicken, etc.) is a good source of protein.
