Protein is needed for growth and repair, heat and energy to produce enzymes antibodies and hormones. Its is important that the following people include protein in their diet, children, growing teenagers and pregnant women. Take a look at feedback that has been given to the other girls and compare your answer with theirs. Keep it up!

    Steaming is a healthier method as it does not contain any extra fats like salt, butter or oils.
    Steaming is a quicker method.

    Apples contain more energy than blackcurrants, blackcurrants are higher in LBV protein than apples, apples contain more carbohydrates, apples are made up of more water, blackcurrants contain more vitamin C than apples.
