Today’s Lesson • Comparing Food Labels • Getting Enough Energy • Choose My Plate
Comparing Food Labels • When you buy food, it normally includes the foods ingredients and nutritional facts. • These nutritional facts differ (change) dramatically depending on which country the food was purchased in. • Today, we will look at how different food labels compare, along with how hard the information is to read.
Making A Table • In your note book, write the heading “Comparing Food Labels”. • Then, make a table with the following information: • Food Name, Serving Size JAP, Serving Size OS, Carbs JAP, Carbs OS, Protein JAP, Protein OS, Fat Jap, Fat OS, Total Energy Serve JAP, Total Energy Serve OS
Including Data • Using the pictures you have collected for your homework, fill in the table in your book. • If the information is not available, write N/A • Please help each other – and ask for help if needed. http://web.securityinnovation.com/appsec-weekly/blog/?Tag=Input%20and%20Data%20Validation
Questions • Please answer these questions below your table in your note book. • Was there a difference in the serving size for the same food? Why do you think they are different? • How are the amount of carbs/fats/proteins different between the same foods? Give examples • Which foods had the biggest difference in serving size?
Group Discussion • Get into Groups of 3. • Discuss the following questions. We will share the answers with the class: • Which food type seems to have the biggest difference in serving size and total energy per serving? • Which nutritional labels are the easiest to read? Explain why. • Which labels were the most complicated to read? Give an example.
Getting Enough Energy • As you may know – different people require different amounts of energy to stay healthy. • For example: • A boy 12-15 years requires 11,700 kj/day • A female office worker needs 9,800 kj/day • These numbers are only estimates – they change for every person depending on what you do, how old you are and how much you are growing
Energy Intake • Every day – we need to eat food. But different foods provide different amounts of energy. • For example, a bowl of cereal may contain 400 kj but the milk has 600 kj of energy. • A chocolate bar can easily have up to 2000 kj!! • There is nothing wrong with eating foods high in energy (you actually need to!!) but you need to choose the right food. • For example – would you choose rice/pasta or Hersheys Cookies & Crème Chocolate?? http://www.sciencenewsforkids.org/2009/10/junk-food-junkies-2/
Energy Usage • You may not know this – but you use energy even you sit down. • However – you use different amounts of energy when you complete different activities. • For example – sleeping uses 4 kj/min but running uses 30 kj/min http://smartworkout.net/blog/2012/05/new-study-shows-exercise-for-cancer-patients-is-beneficial/ http://reclaimedhome.com/2008/01/
