Activity 5B: Calories Activity Suggestion

The focus of this activity is to introduce students to the concept of calories and how the amount of calories that are consumed can affect a person’s weight.
 
Achieving a healthy weight starts with good eating habits. This includes the reading of nutrition labels. Unfortunately, with our busy lives some of us do not take the time to think twice about what goes into our bodies. By learning what our recommended calorie intake needs to be, we may be able to make better choices about the food we consume, which in turn will help us to achieve our weight goals.
