Food Pyramid Bracelets

My first graders are learning about the Food Pyramid this week. To help them remember the 6 food groups and the serving amounts, we made food pyramid bracelets today. Each bead color represents the food group and the number of beads per color represent the amount of servings/cups you need per day. For example, the orange beads are the bread/grains group. There are 4 beads because you need around 4 ounces per day.

Orange- Bread/Grains
Green- Vegetables
Red- Fruit
Yellow- Oils/Fats

Blue- Dairy
Purple- Meat & Beans

             Tip: Use pipe cleaners as bracelets. They work well for this project.
