Nutrition Basics

From the: Nutrition and You Series

This video introduces students to the fundamentals of nutrition. The program begins by reviewing the digestive process in the body through colorful animations. Each of the six major essential nutrients is highlighted including: carbohydrates, proteins, fats, vitamins, minerals, and water. Everyday common food examples of each nutrient are highlighted. The importance of each nutrient to body wellness is stressed. Other terminology includes: digestion, stomach, intestines, nutrients, complex carbohydrates, and dehydration.

"The narrator of the videos speaks slowly and clearly. This would be especially helpful for English language learners... I especially liked the way the videos and the activities applied concepts to students’ daily lives." - NSTA Recommends 11/21/2007
