I had talked to my first graders about the importance of good "fuel" for their bodies, that healthy foods would give them more energy than junk food. If their bodies don't have the right kind or enough "fuel" they won't be able to run as fast or as far. One boy finished a half mile run and collapsed, saying, "I think my body needs a funeral", obviously mistaking the word funeral for fuel.
