Making Healthy Choices!

Have you heard about the new MyPlate icon that the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) released earlier this month? In an effort to encourage Americans to make healthier choices at meal times, the icon will replace the familiar image of the food pyramid and depicts a plate divided with recommended portion sizes for fruit, vegetable, grains, protein and dairy food groups.

Our Build a Healthy Plate set is similarly designed to help teach children to categorize foods, make wise choices, and in turn, build a healthy plate! It's made of fabric with embroidered words and the pieces attach with hook and loop, so learning nutrition becomes a fun and interactive experience. And, at $29.99, this set is an excellent value!
Younger children will also really enjoy the Colorful Plush Fruits & Veggies set of 20 pieces for $42.99. They can sort, match and learn color recognition with the high-quality fruits and vegetables into their own color-coordinated plush baskets.
The Body Banner is another great item to help children learn about health and increase body awareness. This exclusive, easy-to-use banner, teaches about bones, organs, and basic anatomy. Available for $41.79.

For older children, the My Body Anatomy Model, available for $66.95, can be used to increase understanding of the human body in a more realistic manner. All the organs are detachable and it comes with an easy-to-understand guide with detailed explanations of each body part.
