Favorite Foods List

Time

  • 20 to 30 minutes

Materials

  • Paper
  • Pencil

Directions

  1. Divide the paper into 2 columns, labeled Foods I Like and Foods I Do Not Like.
  2. Work together to think of all the foods that fall into those 2 categories and create separate lists to share.

Extensions

  • Talk about nutrition and how each of your choices could be altered.
  • Make up a list of foods on the Do Not Like list that could be tried and perhaps moved to the other list. You may want to consider a reward, such as being able to pick a helping of a food they do like for each one moved over.

  • Brainstorm different ways to prepare foods on the Do Not Like list to make them acceptable and experiment with them.
