Classroom Use:
I used this activity in two different courses: Food and Culture; Food and Nutrition. They completed this activity in combination with a larger project about cultural foods. The important lesson learned by many students was that many of the foods they grew up on were very healthy - if they were prepared in healthier ways!

This is a great activity to have students complete with a supply teacher.
