Learning About My Plate

Marie Egnell,   Garden City Elementary School
Access to Healthy Foods

Garden City introduced the government's "My Plate" to the kindergartners and first graders. We talked about their favorite fruits, vegetables, dairy products, protein and grain. They colored a "My Plate" coloring sheet drawing in their favorites for each category. We finished the lesson by having the students take their picture home and share it with their families.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

The kitchen staff will be offering fruits and vegetables that they haven't either served before or rarely serve. Then the kitchen staff will ask for feedback from the students as to which fruits and vegetables they would prefer to eat.
