PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a great activity for students to explore fast food menus and learn how to create healthy meals. Students have to pick a fast food restaurant they frequent often and record the fat, calorie, and sugar content of their normal meal they would order. They then have to create a "healthier" alternative meal based on the nutrition information as stated in the menu. Based on the meals they choose, students then have to answer reflection questions. This activity is eye-opening for a lot of students. Most fast food menus are now online but if you go to the establishments and tell them what you are doing I have found they will give hard-copies of the menus for students to use in class. This activity can also be differentiated by having students compare and contrast fast food restaurants based on their menus or by choosing only one restaurant and challenging students to come up with the "healthiest" meal possible.
