Healthy Eating

Healthy Eating

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

 

Activity 1: Iwan makes some unhealthy choices at the beginning of this story. Can you look at the different types of food and decide if it's healthy or unhealthy?
Is the food healthy or unhealthy?
Players and coaches from both teams rush to Iwan and carry him to the side of the pitch.  Iwan comes round slowly. Coach passes Iwan a banana, which Iwan looks at suspiciously but he eats it. Iwan stands up. He feels embarrassed about what happened. Iwan reaches into his bag and takes out a chocolate bar and starts eating it. Coach watches and is not happy. Monday at training and Coach explains to the team the importance of eating healthy food.

 

Phone call between Iwan and Mum Iwan’s mum tells him to buy some food for dinner.  Iwan walks past the fruit and veg shop, but is too shy to go in. “I don’t know anyone in there - maybe I’ll go tomorrow”  Iwan sees some friends eating fried snacks “Hi Iwan, want to join us?”   The coach walks past and looks annoyed as he sees Iwan tucking into his snacks.

 

The next day Iwan bumps into Budi in the street. He has a bag of shopping. “What you got?” says Iwan.  “It’s Sunday, my turn to cook tonight.”   “Cook!” Iwan states incredulously.  “Yeah, we take it in turns to cook in our house. Do you want to come and help? It’ll be a real feast.” says Budi.  “Hold on a minute Iwan, I just need to get some broccoli from the fruit and veg shop.”  Budi and Iwan cut up vegetables and put pans on the cooker.

 

Iwan and Budi’s family sit down for dinner together.  Lots of healthy food and water on the table.  Images showing Iwan enjoying the food and the family eating together.

Language Practice

Iwan 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. Iwan doesn't eat much fruit.

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

On his way home Iwan buys some fresh fruit and vegetables from the market.  Later at the match.  “Iwan you’re on the bench today” says coach.  “Why coach?”  “I don’t think you’re energy levels are going to be right for the game. I saw you in the burger place, just an hour after we’d spoken about eating more healthily.”  “Come on team. Let’s get ready for kick-off.”

 

When he gets home Iwan calls his mum.  She has to work late again, money is on the table.  “Do you want me to get some vegetables and I’ll cook dinner.” asks Iwan.  “That sounds wonderful. I’ll try to get home early.”  As Iwan is in the fruit and veg shop coach walks past.  “What are you doing in here?” asks coach.  “Getting some vegetables for dinner, coach”   “Great, let's get you back in the first team for the match on Saturday”

 

Activity 3: In this activity, try to 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?

The team have just finished the match.  “What a great match. What shall we do to celebrate.” says Santi.  “Come round to my place. I’m cooking. Don’t worry I won’t poison you - my mum will be there to help too” laughs Iwan. Iwan is eating a banana as the team walk off together.

No he was eating fried snacks and unhealthy food.
That's why he was exhausted during the match.

He wasn´t eating healthy, he only had snacks and that isn´t good for sportsmen. he changed his mind, fortunately.
There's a woman at home who does the cooking because I don't like doing it.
