Designed for implementation across the school year in existing curriculum areas, 18 nutrition activity units for high school students are provided. Each activity unit consists of a list of coordinated curriculum areas, a statement of objectives, guidelines for teachers, a list of learning activities, and bibliographic citations. Various supplements to each unit are included; these provide factual information, nutrition charts, materials for students (such as tests and opinion surveys), and other materials. Among other objectives, it is intended that the student learn to (1) analyze his or her own diet and become able to make choices to improve it; (2) recognize the effects of alcohol, drugs, and too much sugar on health; and (3) become aware of the vital role of protein in the body and recognize several ways to obtain this nutrient. Activities focus on basic nutrition as well as health-related aspects of nutrition. Included in appendices are lists of nutritive values in common portions of food; revised recommended dietary allowances; and free, low-cost nutrition education materials. (RH)
