Food Groups Sorting

This activity would be easy to create by clipping
food items from an advertisement. I got mine on sale
at some point. There’s also a free file folder game at
http://filefolderfun.com/FirstGradeHealth.html
where kids can sort items into grains, fruit, vegies,
milk and meat.

Anyway, here is DD sorting foods into the various
food groups.

PS — When I was talking to my hubby about the
“food pyramid” he said, “Oh no, that’s outdated.”  Happily
I could say that this is the new (US Dept. of Agriculture)
version (updated in 2005).  Here’s a poster of the new
food pyramid if you’re interested:

and here’s a general page that includes some online
food-nutrition games, coloring pages and so forth (again
from the US Dept of Agriculture):
