The ancient Chinese had a very healthy
diet. They ate a little meat or fish served with a great many
vegetables. They ate duck and turtle and fish and wild game, and
Rice and noodles were
both popular. Rice was served at festivals in the beginning.. Rice
dumplings were served during the first full moon in the new year so that
people could make a wish on them. Rice soon became a staple, eaten
nearly every day. A thin tasty noodle was made from wheat.
