Five Food Groups Worksheets
Eat well so you study well! Our free, printable five food groups worksheets draw on the fact that in order for the child to grow and mature into a healthy individual, they must eat foods from across all food groups. While fruit and veggies are massive resources of vitamins and water, grain foods like bread and cereal equip them with the energy they need every day. Think of dairy foods if you're hoping to boost your uptake of calcium, and make a habit of eating protein-rich foods, fish, chicken, and beans for example, if you want your muscles to be in tip-top shape.
Our food groups worksheets are suitable for kindergarten, grade 1, and grade 2.
