           Last week's poll was "Which of the following nutrients is the LEAST important? The correct answer is............... FATS! Although fats are part of the 4 major nutrients it can cause numerous problems if a person's body fat is beyond the normal limit but at the same time it also has a lot of uses in our body.

 Functions of FATS:

1. Insulating material for the body. (Keep warm)

2. Mixes with vitamins so the body can absorb it.

3. Acts as a cushioning material for the body.

4. Contains a large amount of energy.
