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 a life of poor nutrition. There are thousands of fast-food restaurants in American, 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 students to: read for details, make inferences, find the main idea, find facts, summarize data, build vocabulary, draw conclusions, restate information, and make decisions.
