Food Logs Kept by Children

Food Logs Kept by Children

Another good way to teach children about healthy diets is to have your students keep a FOOD LOG on a piece of paper or in a notebook. Have them keep track for one week. Instruct them to write down everything they eat during the day and the time of day it is eaten. Everything should be included - butter, jam, soda, water, etc. Then review the children’s lists in class and discuss which foods were healthy or unhealthy on their various lists and why.

As an alternative, use one of the food tracking handouts located in the Nutrition Handouts links above.
