Nutrition Activities for Kids
I'm a firm believer in "improving diet by addition rather than subtraction." Focus on what you should eat...not what you shouldn't.
That's why I created this "Color Your World" nutrition activity for children (although it's great for adults too)!
How to Use "Color Your World" Nutrition Activity for Kids
MyPyramid for Kids Free Coloring Pages:
MyPyramid for Kids Worksheet: This worksheet helps your kids track their food choices for a day and determine how they match up to the recommendations of the food pyramid. How to use: print out and set a food (and activity goal) for the following day.
MyPyramid Blast Off Game: An interactive computer game where kids can reach "Planet Power" by fueling their rocket with food and physical activity. "Fuel" tanks for each food group help children keep track of how their choices fit into the food pyramid.
Rate What You Ate: Intended for teens, this "Menu Planner" is an interactive way to show kids how to make healthier food choices. After inputting their own food choices, your kids can see if their meal and snack choices are balanced, if they are getting enough fruits, vegetables, whole-grain foods and dairy products, and if they are getting too many added sugars, solid fats, and calories. Best of all, they can explore ways to improve food choices.
Nutrition Activities for Kids: Popcorn Math Problems: Grab some (air popped) popcorn and have fun!
