The Five Food Group
Choosing healthy food 🍇🍈🍉for your school-age child isn’t hard.
*It just means offering a range of foods from the five food 🍇🍅🍞🥚🥑 groups – and it adds up to the best possible nutrition for your child’s growth, development and learning.
*Each food group has different nutrients, which your child’s body needs to grow and work properly. That’s why we need to eat a range of foods from across all five food groups🍈🍆🥥🥖🥩.
When you’re packing your child’s lunch box, healthy variety is the way to go. You might include vegies🥕, fruit🍊, a dairy food🥛, cheese🧀 or egg🥚, a grain food 🍞🥖like a roll, pita bread or flat bread, and water💦💦.
