Nutrition information

chicken vs eggsGoogle is trying to improve how it provides us with useful and quality nutrition information . The results are instant and so if you are trying to find out about food or make informed food choices then the option is there to use Google to get a quick answer and then follow it up in your own time and way. It’s not perfect. The more we use it and the more Google can establish what we are trying to do and find out ,the better Google will become. In the search bar you type, for instance :

beef vs chicken or chicken vs eggs

 

chicken vs potatoAt the moment Google needs basic input . It can’t do chicken vs barramundi. If you type something like chicken vs potato you will get 129 million results and they will be about the nutritional information with regard to each food and you will have to make the comparison yourself. If you type something like tomato vs cucumber it will bring up the sites which compare these two foods and then other nutritional sites to do with each. The results are not consistent as yet for each comparison you do and a search engine like Google relies on people input patterns to improve its performance. One day it will dazzle us with its comparisons but right now , it’s still pretty impressive and helpful.

FatWorld – nutritional politics

FatWorld FatWorld is a free game which can be downloaded for PC, Mac or played online. It has a complexity which encourages to think about the economics and politics of nutrition as well as the impact of individual decision making. The blurb on the site explains it well and then you can watch the trailer. As a game it is cross curriculum and looks at nutrition, exercise, genetic disposition to certain diseases, food choices, subsidies, economic decisions. It covers traditional content in a game arena and therefore might be more capable of getting the messages across in the digital age and could well provide a useful adjunct to the teaching and learning of content. It relates to America so this would form a useful basis for looking at cultural comparisons in health and nutrition.

Food Pyramid Game

Food Pyramid Game Not so much a game as a straight forward learning aid. It teaches the basics of the food pyramid in a non -threatening way and there is no pressure in this game. It is a visual way of teaching something which is often just brought to us in text form. The MealsMatter site then has a host of nutritional and food information to explore to enhance the knowledge of the food pyramid game. What I really like about this site is that it states clearly: This activity complies with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act and links to the relevant act. More sites need to do this so perhaps we need some international symbols to indicate that sites are school friendly and privacy friendly . Why not? It would make it so much easier and it means , perhaps that sites would need to liaise with a central education body in each country to get their symbol. Worth thinking about. In the meantime, explore the food pyramid and the wealth of healthy eating information on MealsMatter.
