      The Harvard School of Public Health has developed a new "Healthy Eating Pyramid," which is "unaffected by businesses and organizations with a stake in its messages" and based on the school's latest scientific findings. For a coming school project, cut out a large, blank cardboard pyramid and allow students to fill in each level with what they think of as healthy food. Afterward, give Harvard's pyramid as a handout so students can compare it with their own. Discuss why certain foods such as fruits, vegetables and whole grains are healthier than red meat and sugary drinks.
