It was a bad day for the Nutrient Team! In this humorous parody of investigative reporting, a group of inquisitive teenagers must find vital foods stolen from their science exhibit-fast. In the process, they uncover important facts about protein, vitamins, minerals, carbohydrates, fats, and water. Plus, expose-style "nutrient makeovers" show just how important these substances are to good health, while meal-by-meal profiles pinpoint the essential nutrients typically missing from teenage diets. Correlates to all applicable National and State Educational Standards including the NCLB Act.
