  • Discuss why a cricketer needs to keep to a healthy diet and what this might include.
  • Discuss all of the types of foods we need to create a balanced diet (Vitamins, Fibre, Carbohydrates, Proteins, Minerals & Fats) and why we need a balanced diet. Look at each individual food type and identify why each one is important in its own way.
