Lesson 6: Income and Food Options
Students will explore the relationship between the availability of affordable, high quality (nutritious and fresh) food and health by watching a You Tube video and reading a narrative about food deserts. Students will then investigate the food options which are available to them and consider their daily food choices in light of that which is recommended for healthy living. To end the lesson, student will consider some factors associated with cardiovascular disease and reflect on their food choices in light of that information. Given their food choices, students will be asked to reflect on what factors most influence the food choices that they make.
