Back to School with MyPlate
Yes! It’s back-to-school time again! (Where did the summer go?) If you’re a parent or caregiver, look to MyPlate resources to send kids off with a healthy dose of nutrition.
Resources for Parents and Caregivers
The MyPlate website has food and nutrition information based on the five food groups – fruits, vegetables, grains, protein foods, and dairy. You can also find information and resources specific to different ages – such as kids aged 5-11 years old.
- Need a few tips to get started? MyPlate has easy-to-use and practical tip sheets just for these young children.
- Looking for fun and engaging activities to entertain and (hopefully) educate the kids? The MyPlate website has activities for parents and caregivers and kids to do together that involves a popular topic – food! The MyPlate food group quizzes, for example, are a fun way to learn about food and a “test” that your children won’t be too upset to take.
