Pick a better snackTM Lessons

The following lessons for grades K-3 are designed to be taught by a nutrition educator. The lessons coordinate with the Pick a better snackTM bingo cards and family newsletters and follow a monthly tasting schedule. Be sure to review and practice these important food safety steps. Fact sheets and coloring pages may be used to supplement the lessons. 

Each lesson promotes a fruit or vegetable and engages students in experiential learning through a food tasting and a physical activity demonstration.

Most lessons are 30 minutes. While the lesson in this video is a little shorter, it provides an example of a typical lesson.
