                                                                  VIDEO SUMMARY

    How should we choose the foods we eat? Should we believe the media messages we see and
    hear about food--or should we choose foods that can improve our daily performance? This
    video favors the second option. It focuses on new food science that links the omega-3 fatty
    acids in oily fish to improvements in the way we cope with stress.

    Discussion Questions
    Show the video for Lesson 1. Then guide students in discussing their responses to these
    questions.
    1. Why is it important to eat foods that provide omega3 fatty acids?
       We cannot produce omega3 fatty acids in our bodies, so we must take them in through food.
    2. How can media messages influence your food choices?
       Media messages, such as fast food advertising, can make you want to buy a product without
       considering the health consequences.
    3. The video encourages you to ask yourself this question: Which foods will help me be the
       best at whatever I do? What questions do you usually ask yourself when you are deciding
       what to eat?
       Answers will vary.
    4. What would you say and do to influence your friends to choose foods that provide omega3
       fatty acids?
       Answers will vary.



Journal
Analyzing Influences This skill involves the analysis of the dynamic factors of families, media,
peers, personal interests, and pressures that affect health decisions.
    Have students keep a private food journal for at least one day. Tell them to record everything
they eat during the day and to note what factors influenced their food choices. Encourage them to
consider all the factors that might have influenced their choices, including hunger, appetite, peers,
and advertising. After students have completed the activity, encourage them to share some of the
things they learned about their own reasons for making food choices.

    You know that nutrients are essential to good health, but sometimes it is difficult to determine
    how much of a nutrient your body really needs. This video focuses on a long-distance runner
    and his dietary needs. Although proteins are the building blocks of the body, many of us eat
    more protein than necessary. Carbohydrates, rather than proteins, provide the essential fuel the
    body needs for activities such as running.

Discuss
Accessing Information This skill addresses the important steps to take to get valid health
information and appropriate health services.
    Have each student write down the components of a typical evening meal. Ask students to
include information about portion size and preparation. Using internet sources and Nutrition
Facts panels, have students research the foods they have chosen and record information about
carbohydrate, protein, fat, salt, and sugar content. Does the meal include a variety and balance of
nutrients? Have students discuss their findings. Encourage students to evaluate their information
source for validity and bias.

Survey
Communication This skill is an interactive process between and among individuals to clarify
ideas, thoughts, needs, and feelings.
    What percentage of high school students eat breakfast every morning? What foods do they
choose? What reasons do they give for skipping breakfast? Have students work together to create a
series of survey questions they can use to find out about breakfast habits. Then have each student
use the planned questions to gather information from at least eight students. Have students combine
the responses they have gathered and create a graph or chart showing the results of their survey.
