Research Activity: The Food Trip

Activities Focused on Where Food Comes From
Food is grown on farms. From potatoes and carrots, to chicken cutlets and ground beef, plants and animals are raised by farmers. Farmers throughout the world raise animals and plants to be consumed as food. There are many different kinds of farms, but all food begins on farms. Some foods are shipped to processing plants where additives to flavor or preserve the food are often used. It is these types of processed foods that often contain unhealthy nutritional choices.
