This learning activity and the grade you will receive are completely dependent on the effort you put into the project in the form of a PowerPoint. Students will record 3 days of dietary intake, using a tracker analysis tool, and provide an analysis with goals to demonstrate lessons learned.

This includes proper citation of references, proper grammar, correct spelling, and APA format style. Projects submitted after the publish due date and time will not be accepted, per the Course Syllabus.
