Looking for a nutrition activity for this Thanksgiving that isn't about calorie counting? Try this FUN Thanksgiving MY Plate Nutritional Activity. Your high school/middle school class will LOVE THIS.


Your students will have 40 min to put together a My Plate approved Thanksgiving meal that works for everyone in this picky family. Auntie Georgina can't stand turkey, Grandpa Joe is all about that vegetarian life, Cousin Mia is up for anything, Little Brother is on a gluten-free diet, and Mom needs to keep it low-sugar. Oh, and just when they think they've got it all figured out, you throw in a curveball with challenge slides that pop up every five minutes.


It's a cool way to get the class thinking about food choices, nutrition, and how to juggle different needs without losing their minds. So, if you're ready to give your students a taste of real-world meal planning with a Thanksgiving twist, grab this activity. It's all about learning and maybe a little bit of friendly competition.
