Have you been tasked to create a presentation about nutrition labels? Are you fumbling with where to start? Look no further! This family-friendly, 50-60 minute long lesson is perfect for teaching adults and school-age children about nutrition labels, sugar, and salt. Created using the tried and true 4-A lesson plan format, participants will become engaged in the lesson with a thought-provoking question (the anchor), learn the new information (the add), use that information in a hands-on activity (the apply), and leave the lesson with a solid task or take away to bring home (the away). 

In this lesson you will engage your groups with a thought-provoking question about nutrition labels, teach them the skills they need to read a nutrition label, and teach them about sugar and salt, and allow them to apply the information in a label decoding activity. 

This toolkit contains:

  • PowerPoint presentation you can customize
  • Lesson plan outline
  • Activity worksheet
  • Ideas for takeaway items

This lesson is ideal for families, but can also be used with adults-only classes, and classes with children ages 10+. It can be customized to different age and literacy levels.

Have fun!
