Team Nutrition provides MyPlate materials that are developed specifically for kids and their parents/caregivers. We also offer evidenced-based curricula that educators can use to integrate MyPlate lessons into core educational subjects, such as Math, English Language Arts, and Science.
Schools, summer sites, and child care (centers, homes and sponsors) that participate in USDA’s Child Nutrition Programs may request free printed copies of many of these materials. Materials available in print are on the Resource Order Form.
We would like to hear from you! Please share how you are using these materials by emailing us at TeamNutrition@fns.usda.gov.
