Have you ever thought about the impact your daily food choices have on the planet?  

The Food for Thought app lets you manipulate a meal to see how different foods compare. 
 

START USING THE APP TODAY

By dragging food on the plate you can investigate how much water and carbon goes into the production, as well as the calories and cost per serving for each food. Design different meals and discuss your impact.  What kind of meal would you choose?

 

This app is sure to stimulate conversation around your classroom or dinner table tonight!
