You Are What You Eat!

The prevalence of obesity has doubled in children and quadrupled in adolescents within the past 30 years. Unfortunately, this population is suffering from similar health consequences that are typically linked to adults who engage in poor dietary behaviors. Therefore, it is imperative to inform youth of the detrimental effects of excess weight gain caused by sedentary lifestyles and unhealthy eating habits. This lesson plan will introduce students to the metabolic and cardiovascular consequences of diets that are high in fat and teach them how to identify foods with nutritional value.
