A girl is celebrating her seventh birthday. Each guest is served one large slice of chocolate cake, a hamburger, French fries, and some oranges.
Identify the food groups mentioned above.
If one slice of chocolate cake contains 35g of carbohydrate, 15g of fat and 5g of protein, calculate the kilocalories that each slice of cake contains.
Identify all the food groups that form a part of a balanced diet along with their sources.
You can get the food groups from your text or notes.

(35*4) + (5*4) + (15*9) = ??
Check those numbers. They are from memory from long ago and better measurements may have changed them a little.
