MyPlate Sorting Boxes
Great resource for teaching nutrition and sorting!
Your children can learn about food and nutrition as they sort the cards into one of 5 categories: Grains, Fruits, Vegetables, Protein, and Dairy. The colors on the cards match the proper nutrition category, so if they aren't sure of the category, they can sort by color. I have four kids (ages 2 - 7) and the 2-year-old sorts by color and we talk about the foods, while the 7-year-old sorts by nutrition category and we talk about proper balance in each meal. I recommend this for preschool - lower elementary ages!
Initially I received a defective set containing two fruit boxes and no grains, but I called Oriental that day and they sent a replacement at no charge right away! Great service!
