Twelve fourth, fifth and sixth-graders are learning about the fundamentals of being healthy during this week's "From Farm to Fitness" camp at Bowling Green State University.
Today, they'll visit the Student Recreation Center for lessons about how the body stores nutrients as energy and uses that energy in human movement and exercise.
This afternoon is an ice skating lesson at the BGSU Ice Arena to observe how different forms of human motion require different sources of energy. 
On Tuesday, in the Family and Consumer Science Building, Food and Nutrition Program faculty and staff taught campers about what happens to food and nutrients in the body. BGSU Dining dietitians and chefs will then explain how to make nutritious meals.
The campers also visited a local grocery store to learn about the marketing and selection of food products.
