Healthy Snack

Daily task on healthy snacks

The students are split into pairs (they can choose their partners or draw lots). Every day, the pair works together to evaluate their snacks as to nutritional value (proteins, sugars, fibre, vitamins, etc.), variety, and quantity. If they evaluate a snack as thoroughly healthy, they stick two stars to their record sheet; if the snack is mostly healthy, they stick one star. Each snack should contain a portion of fruits or vegetables otherwise no star can be given. The snack should also contain proteins and sugars. If the snack only contains sweets (like doughnuts, cookies, milk chocolate, etc.) no star can be given.
