Food Facts Sheets

for many fruits and vegetables, grain, dairy and meat products.
These fact sheets are to help learn more about good nutrition.
Included in each page is how the food grows, when it is
available, what to look for when buying, how to cook, and a

Teaching About Food
While cooking with your kids teach them about the foods you are
using. Teaching and helping your child understand where and how
fruits, vegetables and other products we eat are grown, can help
peak their interest in eating healthy. It doesn't have to be a long
informative lesson, just telling them such things as potatoes are
grown underground, walnuts grow on trees, or carrots are good for
your eyes, can be interesting for them to learn.
Try using these fact sheets for lessons within themselves. Choose a
fruit or vegetable you'd like to talk about. Then read the food fact
sheet, try cooking with it and do an activity (plant a seed, visit a
market or make a craft out of it).
