When Serving Size Isn't Super
To start download the worksheet.

Studies show that one reason childhood obesity is more prevalent now than in the past is because of larger portions, a.k.a. the "super-size" epidemic. Use this lesson to test students' interpretation of portion size. Inform them that they will not be graded on this quiz, and encourage them to answer honestly. As a class, go over the answers and then have students visit www.mypyramid.gov to find out how many servings of each food group they should be eating daily. Alternatively, students could visit www.mypyramid.gov at home with a family member. Encourage students to have their parents or guardian post this activity in the kitchen as a reminder of healthy eating and portion size.
