Did you know Health Canada is revising Canada’s Food Guide? From October 24th-December 8th the public is asked to participate in their Phase 1: Public Consultation Workbook. You can to go http://www.foodguideconsultation.ca and fill out a short survey. Why not incorporate it into your foods classes and have students input their own ideas? Health Canada will use the public’s input to:
• identify ways to effectively communicate nutrition information to Canadians
• develop healthy eating recommendations and policies
• better understand different audiences’ use of healthy eating recommendations.
Take a moment to read Leslie Beck’s suggestions in the Global and Mail http://www.theglobeandmail.com/life/health-and-fitness/health/leslie-beck-my-wish-list-for-canadas-new-food-guide/article32595121/ she brings up some great points to use in a class discussion.
This week’s member only resource is a worksheet on the History of Canada’s Food Guide using a YouTube video. Both the video worksheet and answer key are included.
This week’s E-blast was prepared by Jennifer Hill
This week's e-blast is centered around helping university and college-bound students in researching post-secondary school options as they dive into learning about the challenges that adolescents and young adults face in their journey of life after high school. I used this for my HHS4U class this past semester, and the students found it extremely helpful in helping them put their new reality into perspective. Prior to this assignment, it is suggested to explore how the importance of education has changed over time for both males and females, and explore predictions into what it might translate into the future.
Here is a culminating activity for HFA4U. The project involves research, designing a food product and producing the product. It is also current because it is a co-operative learning activity and can be easily differentiated based on interest, learning preference and style.
