Choose My Plate Group Project

Choose My Plate is a program set forth by the United States Department of Agriculture, geared to improve healthy eating. It serves as a reference for those seeking to foster good health, and an active lifestyle. Its guidelines recognize the significance in creating a healthy “plate”, limiting the amount of foods with excessive sugar, fat, and salt, ingesting the recommended number of calories for one’s body type, and remaining physically active. Using pictures from magazines, your little one selected healthy foods to include on a collective “plate”. By doing so, they are learning to make healthy food choices. This was a collaborative effort, so your little one was encouraged to work within a group, problem solve with their peers, and share their ideas with one another.
