Reviewers Comments: Based on MyPyramid, this resource reviews important nutrition education topics for youth, including label reading, portion sizes, added sugar and physical activity. The extensive Power Point is complemented by a colorful, information-packed two page handout. Both the PowerPoint and the handout feature bright, vibrant photographs and clip art, with select screen shots and graphics taken directly from MyPyramid.

The resource is designed for older children and teenagers, featuring age appropriate language and photographs. The slides compare caring for your body to caring for a car. While the resource targets older children and teens, the concepts presented in the resource are ones many younger children and adults can also enjoy learning about. The PowerPoint has an interactive feel, by inserting quick questions and short calculations on many slides. The last section of the slideshow suggests a number of physical activities, each complemented with vivid photographs of teens being active.

Although there is no resource page available, many of the slides include a source or Web site at the bottom. A section of the slides in the PowerPoint are adapted slides from “Portion Distortion” by the National Heart, Blood and Lung Institute. A branded item is visible on one of the slides.
