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.

If you're not ready to take this quiz, learn more about carbohydrates by reading the first basic nutrition lesson - carbohydrates. Please try the quiz again after you've finished the lesson.
