In the digital age, it is important for students to reflect on how and where they consume content related to food. Students need to develop the ability to think critically when viewing text, food packages, menus, and electronic media to analyze food marketing techniques and interpret the messages being conveyed about food.

Students are then empowered to apply their understanding to make healthy food choices and promote healthier choices for themselves and others.
