Valentine heart is focus of nutrition lesson
1 March 2006

Thomas Bauer

CALORY WISE WINNER: When the Wopila Coffee Shop asked patrons on Valentine's Day to guess how many calories of energy were in a box of chocolates, Thomas Bauer (Fort Peck) Small Business Management, won the prize. His estimate of 1,800 calories with 63% coming from fat came closest to the actual amount: 2,500 calories and 42% (1,050) coming from fat. Holding his prize, Thomas said this was the first thing he had ever won. The nutrition lesson, said Nutrition and Foodservice Director Wanda Agnew, is that there are no "bad" foods. Even foods that are high in calories can be consumed without harm if done so in small portions and not every day.
