Students learn protein-rich breakfast foods with this lively game
|Description||Students throw and catch a ball "SPUD" style while calling out various proteins to include with breakfast.|
|Objective||Students will identify the five food groupings and some protein-rich breakfast foods.|
|Materials||One vollyball or beach ball|
It is okay if some protein-rich foods are repeated, as it would be difficult for each student to come up with a new one. If a student mentions a food or drink high in fat and/or salt such as pork sausage or bacon, gently guide her or him to come up with a healthier choice.
There are five food groupings:
Healthy ("Go") Protein-Packed Breakfast Foods and Meals:
Less Healthy ("Slow") Protein-Packed Breakfast Foods and Meals:
Any of the foods listed in the above category will be less healthy if combined with too much of a slow food, such as butter or sugar (e.g. eggs fried in too much butter).
Less Healthy ("Slow") Protein-Lacking Breakfast Foods and Meals:
