Healthy eating is a challenge – sometimes, it’s even a battle. With vending machines, convenience stores, and fast food restaurants almost everywhere, nutritional value can go down in defeat. This high-energy video shows how to defend against the dangers of junk food.
Straightforward discussions and dramatizations equip students with a wealth of information on the new 2005 food pyramid, the different kinds of fats and sugars, how to read ingredients labels, and how to control what foods are available. Commentary from nutrition and food policy experts provides backup, with insights into junk food packaging and advertising tactics.
