Healthy Snacks (post-assessment)
Let's Talk About It
The activity “Healthy Snacks” teaches students that food labels provide important information about the nutritional value of foods. It also teaches students how to read food labels.
Ask, Based on the nutritional information printed on the food labels, which snack appeared to be the MOST healthy? Which snack appeared to be the LEAST healthy? Then ask, Which food groups are represented in each snack? Are the quantities of the nutrients present in healthy amounts?
