FOOD AND NUTRITION
Why study this?
To know how to take good care of yourself.
You will learn:
- what's good,
- not so good,
- how to make healthy choices.
My Food Diary (MAJOR GRADE)
You will be keeping a food diary to learn about the foods you eat over a weeks time and the nutrition you get from those foods.
The diary is for your knowledge. You do NOT (and should not necessarily) need to change how you are eating.
Even if you keep your food diary on your phone, it will need to be transferred to paper so you have a copy of it. Remember sometimes things happen to phones that are out of your control. You will have class time each day to transfer your food diary to paper.
Have your food diary in class EACH DAY. That is part of the grade.

Nutrition Project (major grade)
Link to what we covered in class
Most of our work will be done in class. You might want to get some info together for your food poster project outside of class for your (and your groups) use in class.
We will also be doing some cooking labs in class. This will give you a chance to show me what you can do in a cooking lab. These days you will get a daily group grade based on your ability to follow instructions in the lab, follow a recipe, cleanup after your group, and evaluate your food and work in the lab. Cooking labs will not start until week of March 21st at the very earliest.
