Serving Up Nutrition Poster
Celebrate healthy eating with the new Food Plate and update your nutrition curriculum.
As students understand the effects of a good nutritional diet on growth and development, they assess eating habits to modify meals for a healthier lifestyle. The teacher can check for understanding of food groups by having students sort food into the appropriate sections of the Food Plate. An interactive Plate will allow students to evaluate their lunches by placing food markers in the correct, proportioned sections. Such opportunities allow students at various age levels to develop positive dietary habits for healthy living.
Introduce healthy eating with our Food Plate die and help students determine a nutritious, well-balanced meal.
