The Food Groups according to Kids

We have been talking about the food groups lately.  First as we did some activities for National Nutrition Month and then more recently with a item we have reviewed.  So this is a topic in the forefront of my kids minds right now. When we were in the car they other day, my 7 year old started naming food groups, but they weren't exactly what we have been talking about.

His List

  • Chocolate
  • Colorful Food
  • Milk and Dairy
  • Things that go crunch
  • Things I DO NOT EAT
 At least he got one right. 

Then I decided to elaborate on his list.  Here is what I came up with:

  • Chocolate Chip Cookies
  • Chocolate Cheesecake
  • Shaped Chocolate  (i.e. Nuggets, Kisses)
  • Chocolate in any other Form

I know this post is directly contrary to my last post, but I just felt like writing it.  I enjoy chocolate and I know there are many others who do too, so I just had to share.
