This week’s lesson plans are all about health and nutrition. It is important to instill an interest in health and nutrition at an early age because children will want to continue their healthy habits as they grow older. These activities help familiarize children with the food pyramid and encourage healthy eating habits. They also show how foods contain nutrients that help your body and that exercise and staying active will help you grow strong. Draw a food pyramid on poster board. Explain all the food groups to your child. Have child cut out pictures of food from a magazine and paste into their group.
