FREE! "Is This Product Healthy?" Food Label Reading Lesson and PowerPoint:

Product Description

The lesson starts with a 16-slide PowerPoint lesson and follows up with a worksheet where each student will pick a product or label and read it on their own.

The PowerPoint will teach students how manufacturers may try to deceive consumers and why it's important to know how to discern the information on a label (beware of unrealistic serving sizes, deceptive servings per container, misleading container information, etc). Students will learn how to pick what's worth reading on a food label and how to learn how to read and understand a food label.

* You may want to follow this lesson up with my "Food Label Scavenger Hunt Activity" which will give students so much practice reading 42 different food labels, they'll be reading food labels in their sleep!) It's for sale on Teacher Lingo, or you can get it at:

"Food Label Scavenger Hunt"
