Health Class Goes Shopping

The Fort Calhoun High School Health students gained first-hand experience in making informed decisions when selecting grocery items.  Their record of nutritional facts was utilized back in the classroom during their Nutrition Unit of study. They recorded facts on things like fat, calories, and sodium content. Tilten Nottleman and Bella Irvine reported that it was nice getting out of the classroom and being active while getting first-hand experience learning how to read nutrition labels.
