    Answer 1/7

    What is the Mexican dip guacamole made of?

    • You answered:
    • The Correct Answer:

    Avocado is a fruit that has vitamins and minerals that are good for you. You may have heard avocados are fatty. But they have the healthy kind of fat that helps your heart -- unlike french fries, which have unhealthy fats.

    Guacamole makes a delicious, good-for-you snack! Two tablespoons is a healthy portion. Try it as a dip with crunchy bell pepper strips or baby carrots.

    Answer 2/7

    At least half the people in the world eat this food: 

    • You answered:
    • The Correct Answer:

    Rice is a common food in different countries, like China, India, and Japan.



    Do you usually eat white rice? It actually starts out as brown rice. Brown rice is a whole grain, which means it’s good for your heart and keeps you fuller longer. When brown rice is processed, it loses vitamins and fiber, which makes it white.



    The next time you want rice, ask for brown rice, or brown rice and white rice mixed together. Remember, 1/2 cup is one portion.

    Answer 3/7

    This chicken dish comes from the tropical island of Jamaica.

    • You answered:
    • The Correct Answer:

    Jerk chicken comes from Jamaica, an island in the Caribbean Sea. It’s healthy because it’s baked or grilled. The flavor comes from spices like hot peppers, cinnamon, or garlic. It’s sort of like barbecued chicken.



    Fried chicken is made with unhealthy fats. And chicken wings are unhealthy, too. They’re fried before they take a bath in butter and hot sauce.



    To keep your body growing strong, eat grilled or baked chicken -- and veggies -- this week!

    Question 4/7

    Which of these veggies would you find most often in Indian food?

    Answer 4/7

    Which of these veggies would you find most often in Indian food?

    • You answered:
    • The Correct Answer:

    Lentils come in many Indian curry sauces or stews. You can also mix them with other veggies. They’re a cousin of beans such as black beans and pinto beans. 



    Lentils have protein like meat does. Protein helps build muscles. Lentils don’t have unhealthy fats, so they’re good for you.  They also have a lot of fiber, which is good for your heart and keeps you full.  You could try eating a meal without meat and have lentils instead. One portion is 4 tablespoons.

    Question 5/7

    Which pizza topping is the favorite in the United States?

    Answer 5/7

    Which pizza topping is the favorite in the United States?

    • You answered:
    • The Correct Answer:

    Most of the pizza eaten in America has pepperoni on top. But it has a lot of unhealthy fat.  Be adventurous and try chicken on your pizza instead. Chicken is a lean meat, so it is better for you.

    Or skip meat as a topping. Load your pizza with veggies instead for extra tastiness! Try peppers, tomatoes, or even broccoli.

    One small slice, the size of two $1 bills, is the right size for a snack.

    Answer 6/7

    Which Central American food makes a yummy dessert?

    • You answered:
    • The Correct Answer:

    Plantains are fruits that look a lot like bananas. But you usually have to cook them before you can eat them.  When you do, they turn sweet. They make a great dessert or a side dish with your dinner.

    Plantains have vitamins that help keep your skin, teeth, and gums healthy. Try eating them baked or grilled – the fried kind can have unhealthy fats.

    Answer 7/7

    Sweet potatoes are grown in China. 

    • You answered:
    • The Correct Answer:

    Sweet potatoes are grown all over the world, including China and the United States.



    You might think of sweet potatoes as a Thanksgiving veggie. But you can eat them all year. Have you tried baked sweet potato fries or a baked sweet potato with a sprinkle of cinnamon? You can even eat them raw and cut up. They taste sweet like carrots. Try dipping them in hummus for a snack.



    Sweet potatoes are good for your eyes and bones.
