How it maps to the curriculum

Strand: 1. Food, Health & Culinary Skills

Strand unit: 12. Nutritional Requirments - Each Lifecycle

Suggestions for use: Use the resources as a means of awareness and informing students of the new food pyramid. The daily meal plans are an excellent resource for students to examine. Perhaps set up a rotation station where students have time to discuss and read the individual meal plans. After the rotation station activity, students should be given time to design their own meal plans using the new food pyramid.
