Students learn about nutrition

DMS Nutrition Activity
Mrs. Parker helps a student read nutrition labels

As part of their health class, 7th grade students are learning how to plan nutritional meals.  Recently, students were asked to select a meal and determine all of the ingredients.  Then, on February 8 and 9, students traveled to the local grocery stories (Pick n’ Save and Red Onion) to research the nutritional information for each ingredient, as well as determine the cost to feed a group of 4-6. 

The trip was organized by health teachers Joann Parker, Catie O’Keefe, and David O’Keefe and made possible through recently acquired PEP grant funding.  For more information about the PEP grant, visit
