Reading Food Labels

Fourth graders examine the food labels on two similar items that are very different nutritionally such as a can of regular soda and a can of diet soda. Next they, sort through food labels to determine healthy and unhealthy foods by examining the calories, fat content, sodium, sugars, proteins, and nutrients. Finally, they work in groups to write a healthy, balanced menu for a day.
