Dietary Manager Training: Digestion and Absorption of Carbohydrates
Learners follow the path of a carbohydrate food from consumption through digestion to absorption into the bloodstream. In a matching exercise, students identify the main type of carbohydrate found in four different foods.
In this learning activity, learners review the value of health and wellness as it relates to exercise, nutrition, intimacy, and spirituality. Examples of each are identified, and learners are given the opportunity to reflect on how these examples are associated with health concerns in older adults.
