Learning Intention: By the end of this lesson, students will be able to understand and interpret food labels to make informed and healthy food choices.

Introduction: 1. Begin the lesson by asking students if they have ever looked at the labels on the food they eat. Discuss why food labels are important and how they can help us make healthier choices.

Main Lesson: 2. Explain to students that food labels provide important information about the nutritional content of a food product. Display different food labels on the board or through a presentation and discuss the different components of a food label, such as serving size, calories, and nutrients.

  1. Discuss the importance of serving size and how it affects the nutritional content of a food product. Explain that the serving size listed on the label is the recommended amount for one person to consume. Use examples to demonstrate how the nutritional information changes based on the serving size.

  2. Introduce the concept of calories and explain that it is a measure of the energy provided by a food product. Discuss how the number of calories listed on a food label can help us make choices that align with our dietary needs and goals.

  3. Explore the different nutrients listed on a food label, such as fat, carbohydrates, protein, fiber, and vitamins. Explain the role of each nutrient in our bodies and discuss the recommended daily intake for each.

  4. Teach students how to read and interpret the % Daily Value (%DV) listed on food labels. Explain that %DV indicates how much of a specific nutrient is provided by a serving of the food product in relation to the recommended daily intake. Discuss how %DV can help us determine if a food is high or low in a particular nutrient.

  5. Engage students in a hands-on activity where they analyze and interpret different food labels. Provide them with a variety of food products and ask them to identify the serving size, calories, and nutrient content. Encourage them to compare different products and make informed choices based on the information provided.

Conclusion: 8. Summarize the key points discussed in the lesson, emphasizing the importance of reading and understanding food labels to make healthy food choices.

  1. Encourage students to continue practicing their skills in interpreting food labels outside of the classroom. Provide them with resources, such as websites or apps, that can help them access and analyze food label information.

  2. Conclude the lesson by asking students to reflect on what they have learned and how they can apply this knowledge to their daily lives.
