Eatwell plate activity


Images of food items are displayed on a table. The children can select 'their' or 'perceived healthy' foods to go in a lunchbox (little plastic basket). Once a maximum of 5 items are collected they go to the 'Eat well plate' and attach the food items in the correct sections of the plate: fruit & vegetables, cereals, dairy, protein, high fat/sugar.
