How Did The Unhealthy Boy and Healthy Girl Became Friends?
In a small town in New Jersey, USA lived a little boy and a little girl. Denzel and Darla are classmates. They study at Millsberry Elementary School. Denzel is an unhealthy little boy. He likes eating junk foods. Candies, chocolates and chips are some of them. However, he is always absent in school because he always gets sick. He is also weak and cannot participate actively on class. Because of this, he always get low scores on examinations and low grades. Darla, on the other hand, is a healthy little girl. She eats fruits and vegetables for breakfast, lunch and dinner. She is opposite of Denzel. She is active at class. Always participating and reciting. She has perfect attendance and her parents are very proud of her because of her high grades.

You should not listen to her,” he said. “My mom is a doctor. She told me that eating junk foods can make me sick. Mommy also said that if I eat fruits and vegetables instead I will grow big and strong like her,” Darla said brightly.
