Importance of proteins


Protein is present in muscle, bone, skin, hair, and nearly every other organ or tissue in the body. It's required for healthy growth and repair as well as the maintenance of good health. Animal sources of protein include meat, poultry, fish, eggs, and dairy. Vegetarians can also obtain all of the amino acids by combining various plant protein sources, such as pulses and cereals. #NationalNutritionWeek
