Through the website www.labelwatch.com students researched common foods such as yogurt, hummus, guacamole and granola. This site underlines beneficial ingredients in green, o.k. ingredients in orange and cautionary ingredients in red. Each group researched the red ingredients found on their label and reported back to the large group with their findings. We then made the four foods listed above from scratch to demonstrate how simple it is to make your own healthy food. Other contributions were zucchini bread, homemade salsa, carrots & apples. We all got to sample the various foods for our snack!
