From the: Investigating the Human Body Series

In this program students will learn why it is important to fuel the body with the right kinds and amounts of food. Emphasizing healthy eating habits, some of the most critical aspects of nutrition are discussed. Using the latest recommendations from the USDA, current nutritional guidelines are explored in easy-to-understand terms. Important terminology includes: digestion, energy, carbohydrates, proteins, fats, water, minerals, and vitamins.

"--this program outlines key terms (such as digestion, carbohydrates, and vitamins), discusses the six essential nutrients, looks at the food labels and the revised food pyramid, and features a few nutrition tips (such as drinking eight glasses of water daily)." --Video Librarian January/February 2007
