Nutrition – V3 Lesson 2: In The Classroom
Nutrition – Nutrition 101
Lesson 2 teaches students that high-quality foods are whole, close-to-the-source and keep our bodies happy and satisfied. To teach this lesson, docents will need:
- Printable Props: Milk container, high-quality yogurt container, flavored yogurt container, box of low-quality snack bars
- Script: Practice, practice, practice!
- Student Activity Sheets: High-quality and low-quality food comparison sheet
- “Grill Me About”: Remember to distribute this at the end of the lesson
- Have fun!
- Review previous lesson and the car analogy: P, F, C’s
- Higher Quality Foods = Whole foods, closest to their source and minimally processed
- Whole and closest to the source means that the foods look like it did in nature
- Whole foods, close to the source have much nutrional value and give us long-lasting energy (i.e. Whole Apple)
- Minimally processed means that there has been a small amount of change in the food from nature (i.e. Applesauce)
