There's no debate that healthy eating is good for you, but too often, teens don't make smart choices when it comes to food and activity.
Two high school classmates prepare for a debate on healthy eating, a nutritionist gives advice, and student interviews give a "real life" view of eating habits.
From them viewers learn:
• The F-A-T-S method of eating and activity
• The P-L-A-N method of changing bad eating/activity habits
• Why the Food Pyramid matters
• How to use a hunger scale to control eating
• How reading food labels can help teens make good choices
Run time: 20 Minutes.
Audience: Grades 6-Adult.
