Diet analysis for nutrition class
In this section of the diet analysis assignment, you will take the information in the three diet worksheets and enter into the Super Tracker on Choose my plate.gov Enter each day at a time. Then go to My Reports and print the nutrient report for that day. The report can be downloaded as a Word, PDF or Excel document. Download each day and save it using your last name and the # day.
For example, I entered what I ate for Monday into SuperTracker. I downloaded the nutrient report and save it to my desktop as GordonDay1.
