Who is healthier?
Read the piece below and decide who is healthier, Mary or Tim.
My name is Mary and I am an architect. I get up every morning and have cereal for breakfast. I also have a can of coke. I drink too much coke but I really like it. For lunch I have a sandwich but I also eat a lot of fruit. I don’t exercise enough but I try and I go for a run once a week. For dinner I usually have pasta or salad. My brother is called Tim and he works in an office. He doesn’t eat breakfast in the morning but he has a salad and a glass of orange juice for lunch. He does a lot of exercise and goes to the gym every day but he eats too many cakes. He works very hard and sometimes just has a sandwich for dinner. I don’t think he gets enough sleep.
