MyPlate for MyBody - Video

This videos features the “MyPlate for MyBody” activity, which is the foundation for all of the other nutrition education activities in the ChildcareAlive! Curriculum. In this activity, children will learn how different foods help their bodies grow.

One of the main focuses of ChildcareAlive! is teaching children how food affects their bodies. Knowing the connection between food and their bodies may make children more motivated to try foods, but always remember that lots of other support is usually needed to encourage children to become adventurous tasters.

Because this activity is so important for the other ChildcareAlive! nutrition activities, it is important for providers and children to become very familiar with MyPlate and the suggested motions for each food group.
