Food and Nutrition

The Food and Nutrition module consists of four sequential investigations that help students understand what food is, what it is made of, and how several nutrient groups contribute to healthful nutrition.


FOSS expects students to:

  • Observe and investigate properties of foods.
  • Become aware of carbohydrates, proteins, fats, and vitamins as components of food.
  • Gain experience with indicators.
  • Use indicators to test for acid, vitamin C, sugar, and fat in foods.
  • Relate the results of investigations and experiments to the amount of chemicals in foods.
  • Become aware of guides for healthy nutrition.
  • Become informed consumers, able to gather information about food products.
  • Apply mathematics in the context of science.
  • Acquire vocabulary associated with nutrition.
  • Use scientific thinking processes to conduct investigations and build explanations: observing, communicating, comparing, organizing, and relating.
