Students will plan meals and snacks that feature foods from Canada’s Food Guide (CFG) by completing creative activities, such as designing their own food truck.
Using engaging videos and activities, students
plan meals and snacks using the CFG Plate;
explore how choosing a variety of foods helps meet nutrient needs;
examine factors that influence food choices; and
culminate their learning with an exciting final challenge (food trucks, anyone?!).
The program meets Health and Life Skills learning outcomes and has cross-curricular links and assessment tools. Food for Me is similar to our DIY Meals and Snacks program, except no kitchen is required!
One kit includes 35 student workbooks, one teacher guide, and a set of nutrient graphs. If you need more than the max order number, contact us at AlbertaNutrition@dfc-plc.ca.
The Teacher Guide provides all the background information you need to teach the program’s four lessons. Plus, it includes ready-to-use student and teacher assessment tools and an optional English Language Arts extension activity.
The slide decks contain the video, background information, activity instructions, and discussion questions required to teach each lesson. Suggested speaking notes and additional information for teachers is provided in the notes section of each slide.
