Class Summary - Today, we looked at the format of a nutrition label. Then, I had students practice reading food labels. They were to fill out a worksheet packet on the food label as they read either a label that they looked up or borrowed from my stash. This was not due for a grade but students should know how to complete all of the questions as it is a reflection of questions that will be on the test. Then students drew items from a hat that are typical foods that students eat for breakfast, lunch, snacks, and beverages. Then, they were to look up the grams of sugar in each item. They divided the grams of sugar by 4.2 to get teaspoons of sugar in that item. They measured out sugar and filled bags to create a visual of how much sugar was in those items. Then, they compared to how much women (6 teaspoons) and men (9 teaspoons) should get in an entire day.
