“What’s On Your Plate?”
This is the topic Paula Grass, nutritionist from the Ste. Genevieve County Health department presented to Linda Kertz’s 4th and 5th grade science classes at Valle Catholic. She spoke on “My Plate” which is the new food model, portion sizes, the hidden calories in beverages and snacks, and high fat foods.
She provided practical information to the students to help them make healthier food choices for themselves. Ms. Grass demonstrated the five food groups that are the building …blocks for a healthy diet using familiar food models.
She reminded us that before we eat, think about what goes on our plate or in our cup or bowl.
