Lesson Introduction What do your remember about Food Day? How did you do on your Eat Real Action Plan? “Eating Real (WHOLE) Foods” is the first part of the Food Day message. The second part of the Food Day message is to “Eat Mostly Plants.” Why do you think we should eat mostly plants?
Lesson 2.1 – Background Information It’s BEST if we eat whole plant foods that come from DIFFERENT plant parts.
ROOT PLANTS Nutritional Benefits – Many are good sources of Vitamin A – Many root vegetables can be stored for a long time. Examples?
STEM Plants Many are rich in potassium and phytonutrients. Examples?
LEAF Plants Good sources of calcium, iron, vitamins. The darker green the leaves, more packed with nutrients. Low in calories. Examples?
FLOWER Plants Phytonutrients that help us stay healthy now and prevent diseases in the future. Examples?
FRUIT Plants Many colors! Rich in different vitamins and phytonutrients. Fiber! Examples???
SEED Plants Grains – fiber; B vitamins; complex carbohydrates; protein Examples?
Lesson Activity Now that we’ve reviewed the different types of plants, let’s see if you can classify vegetables into the correct “plant type.”
Lesson Reflection/Wrap-Up So far, we’ve talked about TWO of the Three BIG ideas of Food Day: “Eat Whole Foods” and “Eat Mostly Plants.” What do you remember about each of these two ideas?
