Paint Your Plate Lesson Plans by Grade

Note:  Canada’s Food Guide is being revised and will be released in 2019. On their website, Health Canada states that there are challenges in understanding and applying certain aspects of guidance (of the current version) and that the current format isn’t meeting the needs of all audiences. In response to this, BrightBites has created Paint Your Plate lessons to meet expectations in the Ontario Curriculum without referencing Canada’s Food Guide. Updates (if necessary) will be made when the new Food Guide is released.
