Nutrition Rainbow Trivia (K-8)

golden-carrot-award-10th-anniversary

Physicians Committee president Neal Barnard, M.D., is dishing out K-12 nutrition lectures during National School Lunch Week. We have four levels of nutrition trivia for students who want to test their nutrition knowledge.

Here is how the game works:

 

  1. Print out a set of the six fruit and vegetable cards.
  2. Cut the cards (or have your parents cut the cards) into six pieces: tomatoes, carrots, blueberries, bananas, beans, and kale.
  3. Select a card placeholder from levels 1 -4

      4. Place each fruit and vegetable card over the nutrition mystery. You’ll have six fruit and vegetables that match                perfectly with six nutrition mysteries.

5. Copy answers to the nutrition mystery clues.

Bonus: Take Dr. Barnard’s nutrition rainbow challenge. Download a nutrition rainbow chart and check off the colors you eat each day. Aim to eat a variety of colorful fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and legumes each week.
