Food Guide Pyramid:
nutrition lesson is prompted from our reading of "How to Teach
Nutrition to Kids" by Connie Liakos Evers, MS, RD. This easy-to-read
book is packed with information and activities that, although targeted
to educate 6-10 year olds, can be appropriate for all ages. You'll find
the expected coverage of the food pyramid and understanding FDA Nutrition
Facts for food packaging, but there are plentiful cooking activities and
exercises for the standard classroom subjects - science, social studies,
even performing arts - as well. You can reach Ms. Evers at firstname.lastname@example.org
to inquire about purchasing this must-have book.
Options/Variations: Taken from an worksheet in How to Teach Nutrition to Kids, have students categorize foods advertised in an hour of Saturday morning kids' TV shows, listing not only food groups, but also various junk foods, beverages, and fast food.
