Answer

(a) False                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  Because rice is rich in carbohydrate, but our body needs protein, fats, minerals, dietary fibres and water also. So rice alone cannot fulfill the nutritional requirement of our body.

(b) True                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            In the balanced diet all nutrients are present in an appropriate amount. According to the body needs, deficiency disease can be prevented by eating a balanced diet.



(c) True                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            Because different kind of nutrients present in different kind of food. So, a balanced diet for the body should contain a variety of food items.

(d) True                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        Yes, it is so because our body needs carbohydrates, proteins, fats, vitamins, minerals and water also. But in meat all these nutrients are not present. So to fulfill the deficiency of other nutrients, we have to add different kind of food items in our diet.
