Extension Activities: More Ways to Play and Learn:

  • Ask the child to identify each food item (other than condiments) and to categorize it by basic food group: meat, dairy, grain, or fruits and vegetables. Ask the child to place each food group in a different crate.
  • Ask the child to identify each food item (other than condiments) and to categorize it by basic food group: meat, dairy, grain or fruits and vegetables. Ask the child to place each food group in a different crate.
  • Have the child identify the colors of each food item, and sort the items by color among the four crates.
  • Help the child to assemble a balanced meal in each basket. Explain that each meal must have one item from each food group.
