This instructional resource is organized as a six-week course in which students work collaboratively in small groups to produce and market a healthy snack. Teens conduct marketing surveys ; learn about basic nutrition and food labels; and compare fat, sugar, and salt content of popular snacks. They combine this learning with food safety and technology information to develop a company, create a snack, design a label, provide nutrition information, and advertise their creation. The team also identifies a board of directors and develops distribution and marketing plans for their business portfolio. In the final evaluation, team members assess their contribution to product development and sample the snacks developed by other teams.

What’s inside: Reproducible student worksheets, teacher mini-lectures, and a five-minute introductory DVD are included.
