YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT
To grow, be healthy and strong it is important
to eat well and get lots of exercise. But what food should you eat and
how much? Let's find out.
You will calculate how much of each
food group you should eat in a day, a week, and a month. You will also
keep a one-day food diary to find out if you are a healthy eater. Write
a short summary of your findings.
- Print the Food Guide Exercise Sheet. Use it to record
the information you find about the food groups and your calculations.
- Go to Canada's
Food Guide to Healthy Eating. Read about healthy eating. Find the
information you need for the exercise sheet.
- Use multiplication to complete the chart in the exercise sheet. What
pieces of information do you need to determine how much of each food
group you should eat in a week and in a year?
- Print the Food Guide Diary. Think about what you
ate yesterday. Put what you ate in the correct categories in the section
SERVINGS FOR ONE DAY.
- Estimate, using multiplication, the number of servings of each food
group you eat in a week and in a month.
- Write about what you found out about your eating habits.
