Evaluating Information on Food Labels

This Evaluating Information on Food Labels lesson plan also includes:

What kinds of foods include corn? Corn syrup? Start by viewing a clip of Food Inc. with your middle or high schoolers. Then, study a list of corn-derived ingredients, encouraging your class to see how many food products contain corn. A list of discussion questions are provided to shed light on Nutrition Facts panels, the amount of corn hiding in food, and consumer knowledge (or lack of knowledge). A few adaptations and resources are also listed.
