Grades K-6 (Poster)
Use this 30" x 26" MyPlate Activity Poster in conjunction with the Food Models or other pictures of food to teach your students about food groups and healthy eating. MyPlate is the USDA's visual nutrition guide, which depicts a place setting showing the five food groups and the relative proportions they take up in a healthy diet. MyPlate provides a simple, highly visual approach to nutrition that is directly applicable to daily life. You can find more information and resources at ChooseMyPlate.gov.
