Part 1: Evaluating Nutrient Content of Foods
This portion of the assignment does not need any in-text citations or references. You must show all of your work and include all pertinent information that you used to obtain your answers. Charts are good but you must use full sentences and grammatical structure.
(a) Compare the Nutrition Facts table on a “healthy” breakfast cereal and an “unhealthy” breakfast cereal. Include a screen shot of the cereals and the Nutrition Facts table for each in your assignment. Remember to check the serving sizes of the cereals, they need to be within 2 grams per serving for your comparison (not volume). (5 marks)
– Before you compare, state which cereal you think is healthy and unhealthy, and why
– Explain:
a) How the total kCalories compare to each other
b) How the total carbohydrate, sugar, and fibre content compare from one cereal to the other
c) Any differences and similarities between the vitamin and mineral content of each cereal.
d) Conclude with a statement about whether you think your initial assessment of healthy and unhealthy is correct. What do you think now?

(a) Pick a website that has a NUTRITION-based product that makes a health claim. The product in question should be consumed (ie. supplement, drink, pill etc.). Include a screenshot of the chosen product with your assignment. Copy the claim to your page. If the webpage is large and/or you make reference to a number of sections of a website, you may screen capture the specific parts that you are discussing and paste them into a word document. (1 mark).
(b) Where was the article published? State the URL and date it was accessed in your report. (2 marks)
(c) Describe the claim being made. (2 marks)
(d) Describe 5 attributes of the claim that make it credible information or misinformation using the points discussed in class/textbook on assessing credible information. You must pick a side. (all 5 attributes have to argue for or against, not a blend). Do not list more than 5. Only the first five will be marked. (10 marks)
(e) Overall, based on the above attributes, what is your final verdict on the credibility of this information? Is it credible nutrition information, or misinformation? (2 marks)
Use the 7th edition of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (APA style) for in-text citations and referencing.
