Fundamentals of Nutrition Prompt

Prompt/Topic: Anton grew up in France and has come to America for college.  He lived with an French family during his freshman year, but then he moved into an apartment with two other students, all from different countries.  They all study very hard and do not want to take time to cook, so he eats mostly fast or convenience food.  He has found some French convenience foods; they are not as great as home cooking, but he does enjoy the familiar taste of his native country.  Anton is acquiring a taste for American food and pizza, and he often eats fast food for lunch because it is inexpensive and quick to eat.

  2. What practical changes could Anton make to make his eating habits more consistent with the Dietary Guidelines for Americans?
