This PowerPoint presentation will help with understanding Beverages and Nutrition. From sodas to sports drinks to smoothies, students are surrounded by many beverage options - and with the focus on food groups and portions when discussing nutrition, it is easy to overlook the importance of educating about beverage choices. This program presents the facts about the high sugar content and calorie count in many popular drinks, explains how consuming them can contribute to weight gain and put one at risk for diabetes and heart disease, and advises students to choose healthier versions of favorite drinks or pick alternatives. The teacher's guide includes a review worksheet and an activity. The PowerPoint® presents the information from the DVD in slide format and includes a summary, a review quiz, extension activities, and web resources.
