New Year = New Menu!

Now that the new year is here and Kids Eat Smart Clubs are staring up again it’s important to have a look at our menu’s and ensure that each meal is planned with the recommended daily food groups.  Here is an example of a well balanced KES breakfast!

Milk and Alternative – 250 ml Milk

Vegetables and Fruit – Apple Slices (or canned fruit packed in water)

Grain Products/Meat and Alternative – Scrambled Egg Whole Wheat Wrap

A Kids Eat Smart Club menu should provide foods from 3 of the 4 food groups for breakfast and 2 of the 4 food groups for snack. Including milk and fruit daily is essential to providing a well balanced meal for your club.

For more info on recommended food guide servings for a variety of ages check out Eating well with Canada’s Food Guide for more detailed information.
