Serving Up MyPlate is a collection of classroom materials that helps elementary school teachers integrate nutrition education into Math, Science, English Language Arts, and Health. This yummy curriculum introduces the importance of eating from all five food groups using the MyPlate icon and a variety of hands–on activities. Students also learn the importance of physical activity to staying healthy.
This poster shows how to make a student’s tray and/or plate half fruits and vegetables at school, eating out, and at home. Teachers and school foodservice professionals will find this poster helps students visually understand how to make half their plate fruits and vegetables.
This educational storybook, available in English and in Spanish, was developed to introduce MyPlate to young children. Parents or caregivers read the book to children and encourage them to try foods from each food group by eating just two bites, just like the characters in the story.
