USDA Team Nutrition is pleased to announce new and updated Discover MyPlate: Nutrition Education for Kindergarten resources. Schools and parents can now access the fun and inquiry-based MyPlate nutrition education resources designed specifically for kindergarten-aged children. Team Nutrition has expanded the set to include additional foods, Spanish- language components, and fun new resources showing where foods come from.

  • SNAP-Ed educators can use the materials to assist teachers in introducing the five food groups and MyPlate to kindergarten children. 
  • Kindergarten teachers can use the standards-based lessons to help kids learn about nutrition while also reinforcing math, science, English language arts, and health education content.
  • School Nutrition Professionals can reinforce key Discover MyPlate messages at school meals.
  • Parents/caregivers can use these fun readers, activity sheets, and more to help their child learn about food while practicing reading and math skills.
