Wait… there’s how many servings in that?

Just came across this video of what serving sizes really look like… most kids have no clue when it comes to the processed stuff. This could be helpful with any age level Health class.

Not sure about the ending though!

Here’s a pretty comprehensive NY Times article to make it a complete lesson with the older kids. It gets into the impact of serving size on the obesity epidemic.

There’s some other new information in there as well… having the kids read through the comments that people are leaving in response to the article could be a great way to spark some discussion.

More hints and tips in the classroom...
