Nutrition Quiz: Carbohydrate Lesson


Carbohydrates are important nutrients your body uses as energy. The more active you are, the more carbohydrates -- in the form of glucose -- you burn. Carbohydrates are found in plant-based foods, but not in animal products. That's one reason why it's important to eat plenty of fruits, vegetables and whole grains every day.
