Healthy Eating & Exercise: Putting It All Together with MyPlate.gov

 

Grades: 7-College
Running Time: 20 minutes
$139.95


Obesity now affects 17% of all school-age children in the United States—triple the rate from a generation ago! This up-to-date program follows the USDA’s latest Dietary Guidelines and introduces the new MyPlate concept—a brand-new graphic representation of the five food groups which visually helps teens understand the importance of appropriate portion sizes and nutrient-rich food choices. Viewers learn many easy-to-follow strategies for life-long health such as eating less, making at least half of their plate fruits and vegetables, cutting down on salt, drinking more water and making exercise a daily habit. The program emphasizes that a healthy diet should not mean cutting calories, but instead is centered around making the most beneficial food choices while avoiding an excess of salt, sugar and fats.

Includes: video, plus teacher’s resource book, student handouts and pre/post tests in digital format
