Nutrition Bingo


Eighth-grade family and consumer science students at Southampton Intermediate School recently engaged in an entertaining game of Nutrition Bingo. The game was part of a unit of study on nutrition and wellness. 

Students have been learning how to read nutrition fact labels, the guidelines of MyPlate, and how to calculate how much sugar is in a drink. They’ve also learned about fiber, carbohydrates and fats and how to make a whole grain, low-fat cheese pizza.

The bingo game exemplified healthy foods within the categories of grains, vegetables/fruits, fats, protein and dairy and featured a bonus area with different types of exercises.
