In this unit, students explore Australian Guide to Healthy Eating advice to 'drink plenty of water' and the range of health benefits this provides. They also investigate other sources of fluid including soft drink, diet soft drink, energy drinks and sports drinks and the nutritional value and detriments of each of these. Sustainability issues such as environment and cost are raised in a comparison of tap water and bottled water. Students assess their own intake of water and alternate drinks and evaluate the health, financial and environmental impacts of this consumption.
