Activity Description of "Nutrition Consultants, Inc."

Title Nutrition Consultants, Inc.
Audience 9th grade biology classes
Abstract In this project, students work in pairs and act as nutrition consultants in order to analyze sample diets, determining whether or not those diets are healthy. Each nutrition "clinic" is given a sample client, complete with sample biographical information and a sample diet. Once each clinic has analyzed their client's diet, they are to make recommendations concerning nutrition habits. Students make recommendations based on their client's calorie, carbohydrate, fat, and protein intakes. Since multiple clinics in each class are given the same client, each pair must write a proposal and give an oral presentation of their recommendations, with the intent of giving the best proposal/presentation in order to be hired by their client as his/her nutrition consultants.
