In Health & Nutrition, students learn that what we eat is critical to our overall health, from our cells to our senses to how we feel. Cells need nutrients to function properly, and we get them from the foods we eat. Viewers will be treated to a complete rundown of essential nutrients, including carbohydrates, fats, proteins, vitamins, minerals and water. The concept of a balanced diet is stressed, along with a full presentation of the Food Guide Pyramid and a segment on the importance of exercise for maintaining good health. Includes an interview with a nutrition expert and a fun hands-on activity in which kids actually measure and compare the amount of energy stored in different foods. One of 10 volumes in the Human Body in Action Video Series in the Schlessinger Science Library. Part of the Schlessinger Science Library in Action Collection. This title is based on the concepts outlined in the National Science Education Standards for Life Science: structure & function in living systems, reproduction & heredity, regulation & behavior and diversity & adaptations of organisms. A teacher's guide is included and available online.

Only available in the US.
