Some foods have lost many minerals and vitamins because they are refined and instead they contain artificial colors, flavors, preservatives, and sweeteners. These "fake" foods do not nourish your body or protect you from illness. Healthful whole foods, especially foods from plants, give your body the fuel it needs to have energy, do well in school, feel good, and look your best.

This could be holding the door open for someone, helping someone pick up something They've dropped, picking up a piece of trash in the hallway, or just giving someone a compliment.
