My Very Own Pizza(2)

My Very Own Pizza

From The Dairy Council of California, a trade group, comes this site about pizza, on which, of course, cheese is a major ingredient. This site provides a "Pizza History," and provides information, of sorts, on the 'nutritional value' of pizza. Although it attempts to show how typical pizza ingredients or toppings (including pineapple!) provide 'nutrition' from the various food groups, the site never once uses these imprtant words: calories, carbohydrates, fats, saturated fats, fat-grams, etc. A clever teacher might use this fact to spark some interesting class discussions about how we are manipulated as consumers and/or about the growing problem of childhood obesity.
