This lesson provides practical tips and ways of planning and structuring meals and snacks to provide enjoyment, nutrition, and adequate energy. The core nutrition concepts regarding energy balance, protein, fat, carbohydrate, and micronutrients are put into practice.
This lesson helps students to understand and become aware of their appetite, satiety, and hunger cues. Building on the fundamentals from previous lessons, students dive deeper into topics including listening to our body’s signals, how food choices can impact the amount of food we consume, and the importance of developing this skill for maintaining a healthy body. Students also begin to explore our “food environment” and media influence with regard to food choices and the total amount of food we consume.
The goal of this lesson is to help students to understand how to apply what they’ve learned in developing a positive body image. Students will also explore how the media, their peers, and culture influence and shape the ways in which we view our own bodies as well as those around us.
This lesson helps students understand the key habits and healthy behaviors we can begin to implement that will set us up for long term success going into adulthood. This lesson is somewhat of a capstone for the course and students will be encouraged to spend some time considering specific habits and behaviors that they can begin to work on that may improve their overall health.

Jeff has the ability to just understand science and to relay it to others in an easily digestible format. His knowledge is outstanding and he has an abundance of patience making him absolutely ideal to teach nutrition to children and teens. He is also one of the kindest and most helpful people I’ve met. I highly recommend Jeff as I know he will go above and beyond to help you with whatever goals you or your children have.”
