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 eggs.

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.
