English seminar class about dietician in School

This is a face to face between a dietician and a group of students:

Teacher : Dear students, I have invited a dietician for a face to face session with you. This is Dr.Suniti Bhojan. You are free to ask her questions.

Student A : Ma’m, could you please suggest a correct fitness schedule?

Dr. S.B. : You must aim for a healthy weight and be physically active.

Student B : How does one choose one’s diet?

Dr. S.B. : You must choose a variety of grains daily, especially whole grains and a variety of fruit and vegetables everyday. A sensible diet is low in saturated fat and cholesterol and moderate in
total fat. Also see to it that salt and sugar content is moderate.
