Serving Up My Plate--A Yummy Curriculum

Serving Up MyPlate is a new collection of classroom materials that helps elementary school teachers integrate nutrition education into Math, Science, English Language Arts, and Health. This yummy curriculum introduces the importance of eating from all five food groups using the MyPlate icon and a variety of hands–on, inquiry based activities. Students also learn the importance of physical activity to staying healthy. 

This free curriculum consists of the following components:

  • Teacher's Guides
  • Original Songs
  • Posters
  • Mini Posters
  • Parent Handouts
  • Additional Game & Resources

Each Teacher's Guide has three inquiry-driven lessons that help children discover nutrition, explain their understandings, and reflect upon their experiences - all of which encourage a lasting awareness of what it means to be healthy.
