In this activity, learners will plan a snack within a budget. With a $20 limit (theoretical) to spend on snack for everyone, learners look over grocery store circulars and make their shopping lists. As a group, they compare shopping lists and choose one. Does the shopping list with the healthiest foods get chosen or the one with the most food? Make sure to plan a time to actually make the purchases, if possible, to make this activity more realistic. Variations include planning a äóěwish listäó with catalogs and a spending limit such as $500 or $1,000. Available as a web page and downloadable pdf. (less)
