Balanced Diet

From the: Nutrition and You Series

This program provides students with the basic knowledge and skill to achieve a balanced diet. After reviewing the basic nutrient groups, the concepts of Recommended Dietary Allowances and food labels are introduced. The new USDA food pyramid is illustrated through vivid graphics, emphasizing each of the five major food groups. Special attention is placed on helping students plan a diet consisting of a wide variety of foods from the major food groups based on their age, gender and activity level. Other terminology includes: calories, RDA, food labels, grains, vegetables, fruits, milk group, meat and beans group, and food pyramid.

"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
