PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Help your students to look beyond packaging to see food label truths.

This lesson is fun and kids love guessing the products. Then you follow up with how to read food labels. That's why it's in my "Top 10 Favorite Lessons Series" (See below).

Use this fun PowerPoint Quiz to show your students that without even realizing it, they are probably being influence by food manufacturers and their creative, and often misleading packaging.

The lesson message is simple: look beyond the package recognition, appearance, ploys, claims, and deceptions, and read the information on the food label to get the real picture. Teach your students to be educated consumers!

Here is what is included:

1. Full step-by-step lesson directions are included.

2. A 43-slide "Guess the Product" PowerPoint is fun and engaging. It has pictures of 20 real products that many students will recognize. Students enjoy the challenge and mine were into trying to get a perfect 20 out of 20 score (I listed their names on the board if they did it!)

3. This lesson helps students see that although many people feel that packaging does not influence them, they will see otherwise when they see how many recognized these products. They'll see that manufacturers are getting what they want-they know teenagers are just developing their habits and eating patterns for life and product recognition will create repeat consumers. Secondly, it is critical that your students know how to get beyond the packaging and know how to read a food label so they aren't swayed or deceived into buying and eating something that is unhealthy.

4. A Common Core Aligned Food Label Reading Lesson: A 16-slide PowerPoint will walk students through recognizing unrealistic serving sizes, deceptive numbers hidden behind asterisks on food labels, why servings per container always needs to be checked, and other misleading container information.

5. A "Food Label Reading" worksheet

6. This lesson includes everything students should know about reading food labels and gives the formulas to figure out if a food is healthy - less than 35% fat and sugar. The lesson ends with students picking their own product and working through a worksheet.

7. An Optional "Grocery Store Scavenger Hunt" Activity

THIS RESOURCE AND ALL ITS MATERIALS ARE INCLUDED IN MY FULL SEMESTER PROGRAMS: "THE BEST HEALTH CURRICULUM" and "THE BEST HEALTH CURRICULUM FORMATTED FOR 3 SEQUENTIAL GRADE LEVELS" AND IS ALSO PART OF THE "NUTRITION UNIT."
