Project Description

My Nutrition Labels

Assignment - Take a picture of a nutrition label on an item of food in your own pantry 

  • Highlight all of the items in the ingredients list you should be avoiding (trans fats, hydrogenated oils)
  • Circle any ingredients that you are unfamiliar with
  • Put a box around all of the hidden sugar ingredients
  • Post the picture in the class projects section for the group to analyze and discuss. 

Together we will learn healthier options and what to avoid when reading nutrition labels.
