★ Here is what previous buyers are saying:


  •  "Actually one of the best resources I've ever downloaded from TPT. I can't believe it was free!! I don't even teach health. I'm using it for a class on science literacy and this was the perfect fit for my unit on food science and diets."
  • "Kids bring in all kinds of things and ask is this healthy, but I believe that once I show them this presentation they will know how to check for themselves."

      This is a great no prep way to address reading nutritional labels.

      Keep teaching a joy

      Used with 7th grade level health class. Students were engaged and seemed to enjoy the activities.

      Teresa H.

      This was an interesting resource that I used in our homeschool for health education. My son, age 16, was particularly surprised to see just how small 2/3 cup of ice cream actually is! I may purchase other resources from this provider.

      Sherry E.

      Used for culinary arts. Was easier than pulling labels from my actual products.

      Katie M.

      My students love this, they are excited to use it!
