Name That
Food Group


Show students the food pyramid and talk about why we eat foods and how they help our bodies. Help students understand the different kinds of foods that comprise each food group. Next, fill a bag with different types of foods or food packaging. Invite one student at a time to choose an item from the bag and tell where that food would "fit" on the pyramid. (March is National Nutrition Month.)
