Diet & Wellness Plus Exercises

Analyze Your Vitamin Intake

The purpose of this exercise is to help you identify your food sources of water-soluble and fat-soluble vitamins. Many foods rich in vitamins work in harmony to provide a full complement of nutrients, which ultimately contributes to a health-promoting eating pattern.

1a.  Determine whether your food provides enough vitamins. From the Reports tab select Intake vs. Goals. Choose Day Two, all meals. Generate a report. Did your intakes on that day meet your DRI recommended intake values for vitamins?

The input in the box below will not be graded, but may be reviewed and considered by your instructor.

b.  If not, list those that fall short of the DRI goals. Did any of your intakes exceed DRI values? If so, list those, too.

The input in the box below will not be graded, but may be reviewed and considered by your instructor.

2a.  Some fruits and vegetables are good sources of fat-soluble vitamins (see the Snapshots). From the Reports tab, select MyPlate Analysis, and include all meals. Generate a report. Have you met your minimum recommended fruit and vegetable intake?

The input in the box below will not be graded, but may be reviewed and considered by your instructor.

b.  What percentage of your goal have you met for fruits and vegetables?

The input in the box below will not be graded, but may be reviewed and considered by your instructor.

c.  Did you consume any fruits and vegetables listed in the Snapshots for the fat-soluble vitamins? Which ones?

The input in the box below will not be graded, but may be reviewed and considered by your instructor.

3a.  From the Reports tab select Source Analysis, choose any day, and include all meals. From the drop-down box, select vitamin C and then folate, and generate a report for each vitamin. What is your best food source for vitamin C?

The input in the box below will not be graded, but may be reviewed and considered by your instructor.

b.  And for folate?

The input in the box below will not be graded, but may be reviewed and considered by your instructor.

c.  Were your best sources shown in the Snapshots?

The input in the box below will not be graded, but may be reviewed and considered by your instructor.

 Step 2 

4.  After viewing the Intake vs. Goals report in question 1, if you fell short on any vitamin, what foods could you include that would bring you up to the DRI recommended value? If you exceeded the DRI values, which foods were responsible?

The input in the box below will not be graded, but may be reviewed and considered by your instructor.

5.  The USDA eating patterns suggest that a person who requires 2,000 calories per day should, in a week’s time, consume 1½ cups of a variety of dark green, 5½ cups of red and orange, 5 cups of starchy, and 4 cups of other vegetables and 1½ cups of legumes. Create a dish from vegetables or fruits that you enjoy. Get some ideas by using Figure 7–19. From the Track Diet tab, enter the ingredients. From the Reports tab select Source Analysis, and select one water-soluble and then one fat-soluble vitamin from the drop-down menu. Generate a report for each. Identify the vitamin-rich foods from the report. What does the bar graph show?
