My Plate Shopping Tour
This interactive shopping tour lesson will allow everyone to compare many food choices in each MyPlate food group using the Nutrition Facts label and Fooducate, a smart phone app that scans foods and evaluates them based on their nutrient content and other factors. You will stand apart with this show with its up-to-date lessons and expert analysis for grocery shopping. Your audience will love the interactivity and they will learn the most important shopping and label reading lessons.
We made this show because a customer requested an interactive shopping show and presentation using a smart phone app and we thought it was a great idea.
Participants will be working on many activities throughout the show. They will learn that the least processed foods of each group usually grade higher. They will learn that the Nutrition Facts label is the gold standard that should always be referenced for calories and sodium with examples given that drive this lesson home. And they will learn to balance their shopping cart with MyPlate and to make better choices in each group.
The time will fly by very fast! There are four ways to present this material and show:
1) Use a list of foods from the leader guide to place real foods and food packages around the room for scanning
2) Use a list of foods from the leader guide to place real foods and food packages around the room for comparison with the food label
3) Hide the "activity" slides and just use the self-contained show that has many screen shots from the app for a fun virtual store tour.
4) Use this show as an introduction to a real grocery store tour and use the Fooducate and Nutrition Facts label reading activities in a real grocery store.
While it is fun if participants have a smart phone along with the Fooducate App (which is free), there are also many ways to use this show and its activities without a smart phone. Our detailed leader guide, along with excellent speaker's notes within the show, will help you every step of the way.
