BioEd: The Science of Food and Fitness

Use these activities to help students explore what makes up a calorie, how food provides energy, and how nutrients work in the body. One activity helps students calculate what their individual energy needs are.  Students learn to visualize what the recommended serving on a food label actually looks like. They also find out whether what they are eating is meeting their nutritional needs. Finally they are challenged to make menus to meet the dietary requirements of people with different needs.
