What's Really In There?

Procedure (cont.)

2. Have groups discuss the contents of the foods described in each of the labels. Students should notice how many fats, carbohydrates, sugars, etc. are in each item.

3. After discussion, have each group rank the snacks in order from most healthy to least healthy. On a separate sheet of paper, students should write a short paragraph about the evidence they used to make their rankings. Each group should identify which food groups are represented in each snack, and whether the quantities are present in healthy amounts.
