Food Label Project

Nutrients are substances found in food that are needed for good health. Your body can't make nutrients, so they must be supplied by food. During digestion, food is broken down into nutrients, which are absorbed into your bloodstream and carried to every cell in your body. More than 40 nutrients in food are classified into six groups: carbohydrates, fats, proteins, vitamins, minerals and water. Each nutrient has a specific function and they all work together for your good health. In order to plan a healthy diet, we must know how to read a food label. Food labels show us the different nutrient found in a type of food. This project will incorporate your basic nutritional requirements and creatively place them on a food label.
