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.
