Nutrition Project Ideas for High School

Instructor: Adrianne Baron

Adrianne has taught high school and college biology and has a master's degree in cancer biology.

Nutrition is something that should be understood earlier in life. Your high school students will learn and display what they have learned about nutrition by completing the following projects.


Water, shelter, and food are the three things required for us to live. We're dependent on the food we eat to give our bodies the nutrients that they need. Not all food is equal by any stretch of the imagination. There are nutritious foods, which are foods that carry nutrients, and there are foods that are nothing but empty calories. It's important to know which nutrients your body needs in order for your body to function. Your high school students can show their understanding of nutrition by completing the projects below.

My Meal Project

Most teens are not overly concerned with how much nutrition they get from the foods they eat. Learning to be more aware of how their bodies respond to them eating more nutritious foods will help your high school students to learn all about nutrition. That is the goal of this first project.
