Learning to eat right is one of life's most essential lessons. After all, we are what we eat—our choices directly affect our health and well-being. Unfortunately, making intelligent choices is not always easy. From an early age, kids are enticed into lives of poor nutrition. There are thousands of fast-food restaurants in America, many offering toys and prizes with every meal. Fad diets fill the pages of teen magazines, television commercials feature sugar-filled breakfast cereals, and movie stars tell us which cola to drink. This easy-to-use book is a great way to provide students with up-to-date information on the principles of good nutrition while simultaneously improving their reading comprehension skills. Relevant, high-interest activities follow each reading selection and challenge student's to: read for details, make inferences, find the main idea, find facts, summarize data, build vocabulary, draw conclusions, restate information, and make decisions. Targeted for sixth graders and up, the topics covered include cooking methods, vegetables, sugar, caffeine, obesity, fad diets, fast food, vitamins, calories, fiber, cholesterol, fats, and food groups. Promote health consciousness and build comprehension skills! Cholesterol and fad diets are just two of the timely topics covered in this book which aims to improve reading comprehension and help your student begin a life-long pattern of good nutrition.
