Description of Lifepac Elective: Family and Consumer Science: Nutritive Value of Foods by Alpha Omega
LIFEPAC resources promote the principle of mastery learning through the use of engaging lessons, activities, review questions, and tests, all with a focus on biblical truth. Rather than following a rigid assignment schedule, students are allowed to master the content in each unit workbook before progressing to the next. Subjects and grade level workbooks can even be mixed and matched to personalize each student’s curriculum content!
This convenient reference guide contains the nutritional facts on hundreds of food items. Items are numbered with a measurement of the edible portion of the food, and statistics are given for weight, water percentage, calories, protein, total fat, saturated fat, mono-unsaturated fat, poly-unsaturated fat, cholesterol, carbs, fiber, calcium, iron, potassium, sodium, thiamin, riboflavin, Vitamin A, Niacin, and ascorbic acid. Arranged by food types, this guide ensures that students will easily be able to look up beverages, vegetables, meats, soups and sauces, sweets, dairy, and other types of food.
