Transcript of Health & Nutrition in High School Students

In High School Students Health and Nutrition Conclusions Nutrition Sociology The purpose of the article was to examine the link between obesity and lower socioeconomic status.

It was found that foods which were more affordable while also being energy dense were also not very healthful and led to increased weight gain.

The article concludes that obesity in America is largely an economic issue, though it was inconclusive as to an exact solution to this problem. Government & Economics By incorporating multiple disciplines, we will successfully be able to create a well-rounded lesson plan that teaches students about health and nutrition that they will be able to implement in their lives after high school. The Problem The Road to Healthy Lifestyle Many high school students graduate and move on into the real world without any knowledge of how to keep themselves healthy and active.

This new-found freedom can often lead to bad lifestyle choices that include bad eating habits and even just being lazy. Mathematics Calendar Purpose of article is to explain a survey that was performed to children and teenagers
Survey determined the amount of calories that both children and teenagers consumed with chocolate and sugar candy
Results show that teenagers (14-18 yrs) consume more sugar/chocolate than children http://ajcn.nutrition.org/content/82/1/265S.short The Economics of Obesity We could talk to the students about what they think are possible solutions, and look at how different economically statused areas deal with this problem. We could also tie in math by using a certain economic level and having the students try to develop a healthy meal plan using only the certain amount of food stamps their SES level would receive. https://attachment.fbsbx.com/file_download.php?id=114487608735272&eid=ASvQPjAFySXXe6gkwuOH7t85fJNo0Gm0RDaf_IH1BW36zEjSa6mmpBIZQqVy7rwLKFM&inline=1&ext=1363377301&hash=ASui33yIfis3zUw3 http://attachment.fbsbx.com/file_download.php?id=167604050054366&eid=ASs_kIbAECd4VTVxsTOrAXVXBIHUMkw3PRQh61qntLVHBMjUQ1MgrdglddsmJXvwbTQ&inline=1&ext=1363379593&hash=AStcvOcNcsUNK2-T
Purpose: to estimate associations between consumption of food categories, such as beverage consumption, gender, age, family income, and race/ethnicity with the HEI (Healthy Eating Index).
Findings: There was a positive correlation between family income with the HEI.
Results: Family income and race/ethnicity have unique and independent association with the HEI and dietary pattern. The goal of the present lesson is to provide students with the tools to lead an independent and balanced life after high school. The Goal -This study looks at the effects of nutrient standards as part of a wellness policy that was implemented in 3 public high schools, by analyzing the nutritional value of competitive food offerings and purchases before and after the development of the standards.

Results Before:
Red foods: offerings = 61% Purchases= 83%
Yellow Foods: Offerings 17% Purchases = 6%
Green Foods: Offerings = 23% Purchases = 12% Results After:
Red Foods: Offerings = 24% Purchases = 30%
Yellow Foods: Offerings = 47% Purchases = 34%
Green Foods: Offerings = 22% Purchases = 20% StopLight Diet
