Why does our body need oxygen, food and water to stay alive? Our body has some if its own ways to look after itself but we need to look after our body as we grow and get old. This includes giving it healthy food, exercise to make our heart and muscles strong, wearing appropriate clothing for the seasons to keep us warm, cool or dry and protecting our skin from the sun. What do we do every day to look after our body?
