Food Museum Fun
September 22, 2009
What’s the food museum? It’s the grocery store!
We at Healthy Kids Challenge call it the food museum when we take kids on an adventure through the store – and what an adventure it becomes! Whether you pretend in the classroom or actually take a field trip, the grocery store is truly the “food museum” of learning for menu planning, label reading, and smart shopping.
Which would you choose?
Option 1: Sit in class and listen to a lecture about the Fruits & Vegetables Groups of MyPyramid.
Option 2: Go to the “food museum“, where you:
1. HEAR a healthy message about fruits and veggies while you
2. SEE what they look like and
3. MOVE through the store to find them in their many forms.
4. And, “surprise!”, you get to TASTE them, too!
It’s so much fun! Try it!
