Here you can download the teaching guide for this extra activity to do with the toy and print activities related to the game. You can also download the digital game and use it whenever and wherever you want.

How to use the digital game

First you have 3 basic pieces of advice; 1. Reduce the consumption of sugar, salt and fat. 2. Exercise 60 minutes per day. 3. Drink many liquids daily. Then you have to identify and classify the group each of the 16 pieces of food belongs to. Drag them to the appropiate section from the plate.

How to use the toy

Present the food classification method Choose my plate (More information at htps://www.choosemyplate. gov). Pass out the Miniland foods, name each one and say the food group it belongs to: which ones are Fruits, Vegetables, Proteins, Grains and Dairy. Print and cut out cards. Place them on the table face down. Each child takes a card, looks at it, folds it and puts it away. Look for the Miniland food that matches the image. The child shows the Miniland food to the rest of the group. Play at identifying which group each food belongs to. The person who knows which group it belongs to puts a color-coded sticker on it (Fruits-red, Vegetables-green, Proteins-purple, Grains-orange, Dairy-blue), according to the group each food belongs to. Next, the cards are picked up and the player sees if he or she is right.
