WHAT’S ON YOUR PLATE? Bulletin Board

The Student Wellness Team bulletin board is located in the hallway by the main school entrance.  

We researched different foods and snacks and grouped them based on their ingredients.  Foods displayed on the red end of the board are “think about it”  foods that contain food coloring, chemicals, and food dye.  The yellow part of the board are the “better” choices that may not be nutritious, but are healthier than the red.   The green end of the board displays what we decided are the healthiest choices including fruits, vegetables, and whole grains.

Foods such as Wise Potato Chips, Cheeto Puffs, Fritos, Cheez Doodles, and Lays Potato Chips are considered "red".

Some "yellow" snacks include Smartfood Popcorn, Stacy's Pita Chips, and Fruit Leather are better options. 

Talk to your child about making healthy choices in our cafeteria! 

 

Here is a great visual to help you remember the different types of food!
