 Poem
Bread and cereals
Orange or apple
I eat every day
At night and morning

Milk and diary
I like them too
At lunch and dinner
Water we should drink

Rice, potatoes and pasta
Vegetables and salad
We should have 
In a well balanced diet

To end 
It's good not to forget
Sweets in excess
We can't get

 On April 26, the Class 5 ° C of the  School Tourais- Paranhos, Agrupamento de Escolas de Seia, attended a training session on "Energy Drinks" supported by the  nurses Aurea and Isabel Cruz of the Health Centre in Seia.
     They began the session by questioning the students about the drinks they knew. Surprisingly, some students mentioned some energy drinks. Nurses took the examples to inform about the composition of drinks; energy and health drinks. They insisted that the carbonated and energy drinks are made with ingredients that later cause harm to health, such as diabetes, overweight, tooth decay ... The Consumption of these beverages in their age in  a daily basis causes addiction in young people, with long term effects, making them anxious and nervous adults.
     This session was extremely important because students become aware of the bad eating habits through information provided by the technicians
