  • A dollop of ice-cream, a piece of chocolate, pizza, macaroni and cheese!

  • Ooh how I love fooood.

  • That is not food.

  • That is not food. That is junk food!

  • And you know that junk food is unhealthy, right?

  • I know, I know. But why?

  • I mean, how can something that tastes so good, be so bad for us?

  • It is quite simple Bumbley.

  • We need food to supply us with nutrients.

  • Nutrients, which are used to build our body and fuel it.

  • Why can't junk food do that for us?

  • Because junk food doesn't have enough nutrients in it.

  • It does not give you energy to play or stay strong.

  • I don't mind (not) playing if I can have an extra burger.

  • Really?

  • You prefer a burger over playtime?

  • Actually, no.

  • I want both.

  • Can't I have both?

  • You can.

  • If you go slow on the junk food and eat more fruits and vegetables.

  • That way you are giving your body enough nourishment too.

  • Hmmm.

  • I think I can do that.

  • I am sleepy now.

  • Well, Junk food does that to you.

  • It makes you sleepy and tired.

  • You can sleep if you want.

  • I am going to play basketball.

  • No! wait for me!

  • I too want to play.

  • I promise I will eat fruits and veggies instead of binging on junk food.

  • Playing is a lot more fun!
