One of our dietitian clients asked us for a tool so she could teach her clients about how to plan healthy meals. Her idea was to show all of the healthy options in food group format and then to have a chart below. This way the tool could be interactive with the audience sharing their ideas. She can show how to plan your meals for a day or a week.
So we made this handy tearpad for her to use as class activity and take-home handouts. It can be used in any classroom or wellness fair. It is 8.5" x 11" and has 50 sheets that are printed in color on both sides
There is also a matching wall decal that is 40" x 30" and poster that both match.
- Size: 8.5" x 11"
- Language: English
- Age group 10 to adult
- Topic: how to plan your heart healthy meals
- 50 pages printed on both sides - both sides are a menu planner
- Invite each person or team up from the audience to create a menu. Apply points for each meal and also for the use of leftovers. For example, they can cook fish for dinner one night and use the leftover on a lunch the next day or a dinner the next night. Also apply bonus points for using all four food groups in a day or each meal.
- Feature a new menu for each day or each week.
- Use this menu poster in a cafe to help everyone order more items and balance their meals.
- Use it in class to report what everyone ate for lunch!
