Food groups


Teaching a student how to prepare a meal is a functional skill. However, before going to the kitchen, it is important to teach a number of pre-requisite skills and necessary vocabulary. One of these skills is an ability to sort foods according to their food group. The task below will focus on sorting foods into different food groups. This task could also be used to promote balanced dietary habits.
