Food Groups

Little D’s Nutrition Adventure in English is a program developed by the National Dairy Council. The unit starts with an introductory lesson about the digestive system and follows with 10 more lessons about food groups. Using a story about Little D, students learn what foods are in each group and how they are good for our health. Lessons include one on snacking and one requiring students to apply their knowledge by planning a meal. The kit has a large set of food picture-cards that can be used for hands-on sorting activities. Additional kit materials: four computer games on CDs, a poster, and a set of blacklines available for printing.
