Day 1- Food Labels

The Nutrition Facts Label can tell you the amount of fat, sugar, salt and other ingredients in the food you choose. The Nutrition Facts Label is printed somewhere on the outside of packaged food, and you usually don’t have to look hard to find it. It’s important to know how to read a food label so you know what you are putting into your body.

Day 2- Where Can I Go?  Health Resources

  Sometimes when you learn something new, you start to have more questions.  Parents, teachers, school nurse, guidance counselors and doctors are all examples of trusted adults who can help to answer questions about your health.
