The “Healthy Eating” activity packet is designed to meet the curriculum expectations for the 2015 Ontario Grade 5 Health curriculum. This packet has students:
- Explain how to use nutrition facts tables and ingredient lists on food labels to make healthier personal food choices.
- Describe how advertising and media influences affect food choices.
This packet includes 12 lesson plans, worksheets, readings and nutrition fact tables that help students understand how to use and read nutrition fact tables and ingredient lists. Students use this information to compare products and identify which product is a healthier choice. Students also explore how the media influences affect our food choices through the creation of a healthy food choice poster and a food packaging activity. Use these activities in addition to your own healthy eating unit or however you see fit.
If you have any questions, please feel free to let me know.
