In this topic, we are going to show you how to make types of nutrition food model at home for your science project or exhibitions.

This homemade science project model is done using materials like cardboard, white and color paper and pictures of various food and fruits items which are easily available at home at low cost.

What is Nutrition Food?

Diet for the organism is what it eats. For humans, a healthy diet consists of the preparation of food and use of methods to store nutrients from oxidation, heat or leaching which helps to reduce the risk of foodborne illnesses.

Science project on food and nutrition for students at home step by step video?

In this video, we will show steps by step video instructions on how to build types of nutrition food model at home easy way.

First, take a large size rectangular cardboard and stick white chart paper on both the sides with the help of fevicol.

Create multiple large rectangular pieces of red color paper. Stick them one by one to the white chart paper of rectangular cardboard as shown in the video.

The cardboard will be divided into three sections with the names: Energy foods, bodybuilding foods, protective foods.

Under the heading energy, foods stick butter, bread, and buns, rice, Fita cheese and maize with the help of fevicol.

Under the heading bodybuilding, foods stick egg, milk, fish, and chicken with the help of fevicol.

Under the heading protective foods stick apple, watermelons, pineapple, orange, tomato and cabbage with the help of fevicol. This completes the type of nutrition food model.
