FOOD FACTS Have kids identify each food item (other than condiments) and sort it by basic food group: meat, dairy, grain, or fruits and vegetables. Ask them to place each food group in a different crate.
RAINBOW REVIEW Have kids identify the colors of each food item, and sort the items by color among the four crates.
BALANCING ACT Talk to kids about how a balanced meal should include one item from each food group. Ask them to assemble a balanced meal in each basket, then ask them to decide which would be their favorite meal to eat.
MEMORY GAME Line up 3-4 ingredients. Let kids study them before asking them to close their eyes while you remove one piece. Ask them which piece was removed. Gradually increase the number of ingredients.
