Reviewers Comments: Mighty My Plate is an 8 page coloring book that can be used to help teach children the importance of nutrition and physical activity. There are directions at the top of each page of the activity book for the different nutrition related activities. Activities include connecting the dots, coloring, matching, identifying food groups and physical activities. This tool provides an easy interactive way for children between 3 -6 years of age to learn about the food groups on MyPlate and importance of playing for physical activity. Although the Physical Activity Guidelines do not include specific physical activity recommendations for children between 2-5 years of age, the 2010 Dietary Guidelines recommend children between 2-5 years play actively throughout the day. SNAP-Ed educators may use this activity book as a take home assignment or incentive item at the end of a nutrition education session with parents and/or young children to help reinforce positive behaviors in a home environment.
