Essential Nutrients and the 5 Food Groups

Lesson Plans by Oliver Smith

A healthy diet is essential to a long and happy life, but what makes a diet healthy? It is recommended that we have a varied diet made up of food from each of the food groups because all the different types of foods give us essential nutrients. Students should be introduced to nutrition and healthy eating so that they are able to make sensible and informed choices about their diet. The activities in this lesson will help students recognize the importance of a varied diet and why they can't just have cake for every meal!
