While glancing around the internet looking for new, healthy recipes for my toddler, I came across the website choosemyplate.gov. It has lots of great resources for eating healthy, and I started thinking about a song that would help students remember the categories on the food plate. I can remember part of a song about the good old food pyramid from my own elementary days, and I started playing around with a new version. I hope you and your students enjoy this new song, the food plate, located in the science songs section. Under the song, I have a version with blanks which students can fill in with their own examples of foods from each group. I’d love to hear other ways that you teach about the food plate. Happy singing!
