What Did I Just Eat?

Welcome to Day 4 of the FACS Tune-Up Project.  Continuing on our theme for the week of eating healthy and getting in shape, our song of the day is Be Careful What You Eat by the Animaniacs.  It would be great to use this song to introduce the topic of reading food labels and food additives.  Hope you and your students enjoy it.   For more information about food additives, you might want to visit this informative website.
