Overview

Okay, we all love great tasting food, but we’re also concerned with making sure that the food we eat is also nutritious. No, put away that cream puff. To get the rest of beef’s nutritional story, watch the video here. Download the free Lesson Activities at the bottom of this page to use in classrooms and expand learning.

We know that a healthy lifestyle includes eating right, exercising and having fun. And when it comes to filling your plate, you need to go lean with protein.  That’s why people sometimes fill that portion with a complex protein such as beef. It’s a natural source of 10 essential vitamins and nutrients. With one serving of lean beef you get protein, iron, zinc, B12, B6, niacin and more. In fact, one three-ounce serving of lean beef supplies more than ten percent of the Daily Value for these essential nutrients for only 10 percent of your daily caloric intake. So your body gets more nutrition from the calories you take in. This makes beef an important part of a healthy diet.
