During the current nutrition unit students are and will be using their iPads for a variety of activities. Students recently used an application called Inspiration to a create graphic organizer involving their favorite fruit and the many ways it can be prepared as well as some recipes it can be used in. This is designed to encourage them to "think outside of the box" when it come to ways they can get more fruit into their daily diets.
Students are currently analyzing the food choices they make when eating at fast food restaurants (we are using the McDonald's application) and looking at how they can modify those choices to be healthier while still satisfying the students desire for fast food.
Coming up students will be asked to create a 3-day healthy menu using the Pages application on their iPad.
