Step by Step:
Step One: Brainstorm what the four food groups are. Print the title of the four food groups on the chart paper – one food group per sheet.
Step Two: Under each title, list items that fit that food group.
Step Three: Talk about which of these foods the students have in their fridges.
Step Four: On the photocopy worksheet of the inside of a fridge, have students draw examples of different nutritious items from the four food groups that they would like to have in their fridge. Note: The fridge has four sections (two shelves and veggie/fruit bins and the door) that could be used for each of the food groups with room on the “fridge shelf” to label the food group.
Students complete an activity that shows nutritious food choices.
