Food and Your Body -- How to Maintain a Healthy Diet

Students examine the different food groups on the food pyramid. In groups, they discover the proper amount to eat from each food group and how to prepare healthy meals. They keep a food journal and calculate the amount of calories they take in taking into account the amount of physical activity they receive in a day. To end the lesson plan, they discuss whether being a vegetarian is healthier than not.
