Type: Learning Activity

Overview:

This activity is designed to show students how difficult it can be to make healthy food choices and to help them understand the nutritional information available for a variety of foods. This activity can be done at the start of a nutrition unit. It was developed after the author realized that many students had no idea how to make good food choices or how to interpret nutritional information. Many students are keen to adopt or maintain a healthy active lifestyle, yet neglect to ensure that they are eating from all the food groups and that they are consuming nutritious food that is beneficial to them.
