HEALTHY EATING PROMO
We continue our study of nutrition in Wellness class . The next few lessons will focus on a healthy eating promo. From our readings and discussions in class, we discovered the importance of eating the right amounts of the essential nutrients regularly in order to maintain good health. These nutrients include carbohydrates, fats, protein, vitamins, minerals, and water. We discussed recommendations that should be taken into account when planning meals and snacks:
- Eat a variety of foods
- Avoid too much fat
- Eat plenty of vegetables, fruits, and grains
- Use sugars only in moderation
- Drink 8-10 glasses of water each day
Students will choose a snack/food and research the nutrients as well as the benefits of the nutrients in the food that they select. Next, they will design and compose a poster that advertises the chosen food and its nutrients. Finally , students will bring a sample of their food to class to share with classmates.
