New Food Pyramid
With the FDA coming out with a new food pyramid it is imperative for students to become aware these changes. I think the best class for students to find out about these is in a physical education setting. In an effort to help students aware and practice healthy eating habits you can incorporate this information into various games. For example, you could have a tag game in which some students are sugars, fats and candy's, and other students can be various fruits and vegetables of there own choice and when you get tagged you switch over to the opposite food group. This is a good opportunity to help explain good and bad foods to children and make them aware of the food pyramid make healthy choices at young ages. This following link is to the FDA's official website and gives some interesting information regrading the food pyramid http://www.mypyramid.gov/.
