Nutrition and Food Theme

With Thanksgiving right around the corner, this is a good time to plan a nutrition and food theme.

Food and Nutrition Songs and Fingerplays

Are You Eating (Tune: Are You Sleeping)
Are you eating, are you eating
Healthy foods, healthy foods?
For your body needs them, for your body needs them
Everyday, everyday.

Carrots, Peas, and Broccoli (Tune: Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star)
Vegetables are good for me.
For my snack and in my lunch,
Veggie sticks are great to munch.
Carrots, Peas, and Broccoli,
Vegetables are good for me.

Happily We Eat Our Food (Tune: Merrily We Roll Along)
Happily we eat our foods, eat our foods, eat our foods.
Happily we eat our foods, To grow up big and strong
Happily we drink our milk, drink our milk, drink our milk.
Happily we drink our milk, To grow up big and strong.

Other Verses:
Happily we eat our fruits…
Happily we eat our vegetables…
Happily we eat our meat…
Happily we eat our beans…
Happily we eat our breads…
Happily we eat our cereal..

Food and Nutrition Art

Fruit painting
Cut apples, oranges, pears, etc. in half. Dip in paint and ‘stamp’ fruit prints on paper.

Food Collage
Make a collage of Good Snack/Bad Snack choices from magazine pictures.

Food and Nutrition Math and Science

Seed Estimating
Guess how may seeds are in an apple. Cut it open and count the actual number of seeds.

Favorite Fruit Graphing
Allow children to try a variety of different fruits. Graph their favorites.

Guess the Food
Have a mystery bag with a fruit or vegetable inside. Describe the food and have children try to guess what is in the bag.

Grow Vegetables
Plant vegetable seeds!

Food and Nutrition Movement Activities

Watermelon Roll
Have the children work in groups of 2 to move the watermelon across a room. Let them try to only use one hand each, not two!
