Students answer the questions and give opinions.


Life today is not like how it was before. Along time ago, people ate foods that are very good for their health. They ate foods that do not contain chemicals, preservatives, artificial colors, and artificial flavors. People also had a lot of time to cook their own foods. Therefore those people were not been affected by the food that they ate, because all of the foods that they had were natural foods and healthy. But these days, every one is busy and don’t have time to cook their own food. People eat foods that are easily cooked or ready cooked. They do not even think of what they eat, and if it can effect their health or not.

Foods are the building blocks of every cell in the body, are responsible for the proper functioning of the whole body. It is important, for that reason, to know what is good for our body and what is not. Foods can be classified into two types: unhealthy (junk) and healthy food.
Now students, I am going to divide you into two groups. Say healthy food- unhealthy food in turn.

(Studens are divided into two teams)

Team 1- Veggie

Team 2- Chips

Now, students, look at the blackboard. Let`s answer these questions and cleanse our lungs:

Teacher: Well done! Thank you.


1. What nutrients do you know?

2. What are the main things to know about food we eat?

3. What fats are good?

4. What fats are dangerous for our health?

5. What are the factors that determine the food we eat?

6. What are the main messages to follow for healthy eating?



Students , next your task is to represent your posters by team. I`ll use these criteria to rate the poster presentation on a scale of 1-5.

(1= stongly disagree; 3 = neutral; 5= strongly agree).

Tasks for teams:

Veggie: What do healthy foods contain?

Chips: What do unhealthy foods contain?

Presentation of posters

Poster Evaluation Criteria:

1. Poster is well organized and easy to follow;

2.  Content is clear and easy to understand;

3. Poster is free of unnecessary detail;

Fast food is an invention of the modern times. Ready-made food being served fast is like a blessing after a hard day's work. However, like everything, it has its own pros and cons. Citing a few points about the advantages of fast food does not mean that I am denying its drawbacks. It is a fact that high amounts of fats and salt in fast food are raising concerns about their adverse effect on health. However, by making some smart choices while placing the order and also resorting to an active lifestyle, we can definitely minimize the drawbacks of fast food.

Now, teams, We are coming to an end and
