• Pictures of healthy food (e.g. fruits, vegetables, low-fat dairy, lean protein)
• Space to draw/write

Activity:

1. Introduction: Ask the students to explain what healthy eating is in their own words and write the responses on a board.

2. Grouping Activity: Ask the students to sort the snacks into the four food groups (grains, fruits, vegetables, dairy/meat). If needed, provide a demonstration.

3. Discussion: Ask the class to discuss why it is important to eat a variety of foods from the different food groups.

4. Practical Demonstration: Ask for volunteers to come to the board to demonstrate which foods are healthy and which are unhealthy.

5. Creative Activity: Ask students to draw/write a few sentences about the different food groups and explain why it is important to eat healthy.

Conclusion:

Summarize the key points of the lesson and remind the students why they should remember to always eat healthy.
