Lets be honest with ourselves. We can all recall a time in our lives when a member of our family has said to us, “The youth these days…..all they eat is junk food. How do they get their nutrition?When I was your age, the only food we got to eat was the food we grew in our own backyards. Not only did we eat healthier, but we worked hard for our food as well.” I notice now, whenever I look around, all I see are people eating less and less healthy, which in the long run will affect their health without them even noticing it.
By eating healthy food we get the nutrition our body needs in order to gain the energy that is necessary to perform to our optimal abilities in various activities such as running, biking, and playing basketball. Healthy foods even provides us with more brain power to perform better in school. Almost everything we do requires energy and proper nutrient are in charge of making this happen. The basic six nutrients that healthy food provides us with are carbohydrates , fats, proteins, vitamins, minerals, and water. These six nutrients are all fundamental in maintaining a healthy life, and if a healthy lifestyle is important to youth at all. In the long run, eating healthy is a preventative measure that will help against numerous diseases and cancers.

One of the best activities to do in the freezing New York winter is ICE SKATING! The students from Bushwick Campus High School embarked on a 30 minute train ride to Bryant Park to strut their skills on ice. Not everyone of course is a master on ice like Braulio but everyone surely helped each other out while getting a few laughs in.
You ROCK Bushwick Campus High School!!!
