MyPlate on My Budget, A Kiddie Project

Want a way to teach young children about nutrition?

Here’s an easy project for kids that I created based on the USDA MyPlate recommendations.

You start with a paper plate and a coffee filter attached.  (A smaller paper plate or cut out piece of paper would work too.)  Then you divide the plate in four parts to show that half your plate should be covered with vegetables and fruit.

Let kids sort through cut out pictures of food from the circulars in the Sunday paper.

Then kids glue down their food choices.

Easy, right?

My daughter Jenna (3) had a lot of fun with this activity but Bruce (7) thought he was too grown up.  😉
