Question 2b- Why my Menu is Healthy
The cereal gives a lot of fibre and you get calcium from the milk with less fat. The banana gives good source of vitamin B6 and potassium. Kiwi fruit contains about as much potassium as bananas and is rich in vitamins A, C and E. Chicken and avocado sushi gives you an excellent amount of healthy nutrients. They both give you a lot of nutrients, for example chicken gives you tryptophan, vitamin B3, protein, selenium, vitamin B6 and phosphorus.
