Reviewers Comments: These short preschool activities allow educators to use small amounts of class time to introduce different foods to children and teach basic nutrition lessons. The booklet includes a variety of activities that are split into different types, for example book activities and food group activities.

Each activity contains the subject area, activity, and directions. Instructions do not give preparation time or materials needed, both of which can vary greatly. These activities were written by nutrition and childcare professionals and can be used as a fun way to get preschoolers to learn about nutrition.

Most activities are designed to introduce participants with to a variety of foods. Some do incorporate MyPlate basics. There is one activity that references MyPyramid as well as one that references the Food Pyramid, but these could easily be modified to reference MyPlate instead.

Rather than stand-alone tools, educators could use these short activities as a compliment to nutrition education programs.
