"Veggies go in the green group mom," said Emily. "Did you know that fruits and veggies should fill half of our plate?" "No I did not," Said mom," we will have to work that in with dinner from now on."
Now back home, Emily and Mom go into the kitchen. "How about you tell me more about the food groups while we cook dinner." said mom. "okay," said Emily, " the next food group is grains."
"The grains group is orange. My teacher says that at least half our grains should be whole grains." said Emily. " Oh, I did not know that," said mom, " well what are the next two food groups." "Um I can't remember mommy," said Emily. "I do" said mom.
" The last two food groups are proteins, and dairy." said Mommy.
"Protein's are in the purple group. Protein is found in meats, nuts, beans, and seeds." said Mommy. "Wait," said Emily," so this chicken we are cooking for Daddy is Protein?'' " yes" said Mommy. " I remember the last group mommy! It's dairy!" said Emily.
"Dairy is blue," said Emily," things that come from milk belong in the dairy area, such as milk ice cream and cheese." "That's right!" said Mommy," you are getting so smart, I think I hear daddy at the door, go wash up for dinner and then you can tell him all about your day and what you learned!" "Okay Mommy" said Emily. Emily rushed out of the room to wash her hands, and at dinner that night told her daddy all about what she learned today. The end
