Lesson 1

Meal Builder

Whether at home, at school, or out at a restaurant, young students need to learn to create healthy meals based on their available options. In this activity, students help their pal Pepper eat well by creating three balanced and healthy meals over the course of a day. To succeed, they must learn about food groups and build colorful meals that meet the U.S. MyPlate dietary guidelines.
