This activity actively engages the students to determine fat content in foods and can be personalized when students analyze their most frequent or popular snack items. The drawback with any awareness activity is that, despite an understanding of information, a behavior change or making better choices is not a guaranteed result. Therefore, this activity could be enhanced with additional reinforcement activities, heart disease issues, and by stressing the relationship between exercise and health.
