Healthy Eating Plate
Kids know they have to eat well, but do they know how much of each food type they should be eating?
The Healthy Eating Plate is an excellent guide to the correct proportion of protein, carbohydrate and vegetables in a meal.
As children are constantly growing, their needs are different. Generally, a plate for an active child should be split into 3 equal portions:
1/3 protein meat, fish, chicken or legumes
1/3 carbohydrates cooked rice, pasta or potato
1/3 vegetables vegetables or salad
