Friendly, fun illustrated characters deliver the key nutritional messages on the USDA's new MyPyramid. Illustrations are color coded to the pyramid food groups with examples of foods in each group. Young students are encouraged with easy-to-remember phrases such as: "Be active for at least 1 hour," "Make half your grains whole," "Vary your veggies," and "Go lean with protein."
A quick-reference chart on the poster allows caregivers to find recommended calorie levels by gender, age and activity level, and daily portions for each food group. Ages 2–8 years. From Learning ZoneXpress.
