High School Resource
The purpose of Food Fat is for teenagers to evaluate snack foods dealing with calories and fat and to use this information to make informed and wise food choices. Students will be able to identify the amount of fat in common snack foods, and graphically see the fat in a container by measuring the equivalent of the food fat with shortening. Students can also determine what kind and amount of physical exercise would be needed to burn off the same number of calories from this snack food.
