Filipe learns more about healthy eating.

Healthy Eating

Healthy Eating

In this issue, Filipe learns how healthy eating can improve his performance on the pitch and bring his family closer together.
Felipe and the team are playing against a rival team. Coach shouts “Come on Felipe! The player from the other team has gone past you again.” Felipe feels tired and weak. Felipe is unsteady on his feet. His head starts to spin and he faints in the middle of the pitch.

 

In this activity, you have to match the phrases from the story with the descriptions.
Match the words to their definitions.
The players carry Filipe to the side of the pitch.   Filipe comes round slowly. “What happened?” he asks. “You fainted.” says coach and passes him some water. “Here eat this, it will help.” Coach passes Filipe a banana, which Filipe looks at suspiciously but he eats it.  Filipe stands up. I feel much better now. He feels embarrassed about what happened.  Filipe and Bruno are walking home after the match. “See you later coach” says Budi.  Filipe reaches into his bag and takes out a a bag of sweets.  Coach looks on wisely.   Monday at training and Coach is talking to the team.  The coach tells the team about the energy in a banana.   “Look at this.” says coach. Coach shows the team how long energy from a banana lasts in comparison to a chocolate bar.  Coach and Filipe are walking off after training talking about healthy food.

 

Filipe calls his mum to ask about healthy food. His mum tells him to take some money to buy a sandwich.   Filipe walks past the fruit and veg shop, but is too shy to go in.   Goes to his local burger joint, sees some friends “Hi Filipe, want to join us?”   The coach walks past and looks annoyed as he sees Filipe tucking into his burger.

 

On his way home, Filipe bumps into Bruno in the street. He has a bag of shopping. “What you got?” says Filipe.  “It’s my turn to cook tonight.”   “Cook!” Filipe is surprised.  “Yeah, we take it in turns to cook in our house. Do you want to come and help? asks Bruno.  Images show Bruno and Filipe cutting up vegetables and putting pans on the cooker.

 

Filipe and Bruno’s family sit down for dinner together.  Lots of healthy food and water on the table. Filipe is enjoying the food and the family eating together.

 

Language - Countable or uncountable

Filipe eats lots of burgers but doesn't eat much fresh fruit. Some types of food are countable nouns and others are uncountable. Burgers are countable but fruit is an uncountable noun. When we use countable nouns, we usually say 'a lot of' or 'lots of' in the positive form and 'not many' in a negative sentence. When we use uncountable nouns, we also use 'a lot of' in positive sentences but in negative sentences we usually use 'much', e.g. Filipe doesn't eat much fruit.

Activity 2: In this activity, decide if the sentence uses a countable or uncountable noun, tehn decide if you should use, 'lots of', 'much' or 'many' in each sentence.
Complete the gaps with the correct word.

That night, Filipe slept really well. He woke up thinking about what he could cook for Bruno’s family.  Later, he went to train at the youth centre and the coach asked him about the burger he had eaten after saying he was going to try to be healthy.   After the training session, the coach told Felipe to come with him.

 

The coach takes Felipe to the market and helps him buy some healthy food and hives him a recipe. Felipe cooks dinner for his mum.

 

Activity 3: In this activity, try remember what you have just read. Can you put the events of the story in the correct order?
Can you put the story in the right order?

After training, the team are tired. Lucas suggests they go to buy some snacks, but Filipe suggests that they go to the market to buy fruit. Filipe eats a banana.
