The purpose of this Science NetLinks lesson, one of a three-part series on nutrition, is to understand why the body needs food, and how it takes necessary nutrients as food passes through the digestive system. In the lesson, students are asked to look critically at the advertising claims of foods they eat, recognizing those that ascribe unrealistic, emotional, or psychological benefits to foods, rather than nutritional benefits. Students then create an original advertising campaign for a "forgotten" vegetable, presenting compelling, factual information about the nutrients found in these foods and the benefits derived from them.
