Title: Food Calories and Land PDF
Url: https://grants.kennesaw.edu/esa21/docs/foodcalories.pdf
Creator: Pratte, John
Publisher: Kennesaw State University
Description: Obesity is on the rise in the United States, due primarily to the size and composition of the American diet. Discussion topics include lack of exercise, changes in calorie intake over time, and environmental impacts of these increases in consumption. Each student will participate in an activity in which they investigate how their own diets affect the agricultural demands of a hypothetical country. They will record their calorie intake, categorize the calories as coming from either plants or animals, and estimate the amount of land that is needed to provide their daily intake. Links to related sites are provided.
