Here's what a teacher thought of this essay

3 star(s)

This is an adequate essay but I think that there is quite a bit that could be added. The writer has made a food diary and added a basic description of food groups.

It could be easily enhanced by discussing what the foods are used for in the body and where they are found. The section on exercise is not quite as detailed as it should be.
