How this activity helps students learn about and apply Canada’s Food Guide

The Lunch Box Guide translates complex research into a simple activity to guide food decisions. Special attention has been placed on how to select foods in ways that support children’s unique nutrient needs.

Each student has their own likes and dislikes based on their own experiences and family traditions. Encouraging students to complete these meals with foods they enjoy eating helps students build positive connections between Canada’s Food Guide and their own world.
