For the InstructorThese student materials complement the Future of Food Instructor Materials. If you would like your students to have access to the student materials, we suggest you either point them at the Student Version which omits the framing pages with information designed for faculty (and this box). Or you can download these pages in several formats that you can include in your course website or local Learning Managment System. Learn more about using, modifying, and sharing InTeGrate teaching materials.
Using a Diet Assessment Tool
In this assessment, you will use an online diet assessment tool to test how different foods contribute to the total nutrients in a daily diet. You will follow along in the instruction sheet, and log the nutrient content (e.g. calories, total fat, vitamin C) for each diet option in an excel spreadsheet, to be able to compare the diets.
Download both the instructions and worksheet (Microsoft Word 2007 (.docx) 517kB Jan3 18) (word doc) and the excel spreadsheet (Excel 2007 (.xlsx) 10kB Jan3 18) for logging the results. The spreadsheet has color-coding of cells to transform the data you log into a color that indicates deficiency or sufficiency, which will help you to interpret the result.
We will use the tool My Food Record for this assessment. Important: you should use the "one day analysis" under the "analyze" tab so that you do not have to create an account and can just log in as a guest. You should open this online nutrition assessment tool in an adjoining window or a different browser, so you can see the instructions for the assessment and the online tool at the same time.
