Food Pyramid Plate

by Jenna Gleason

This DIY food pyramid plate helps kids visualize how much of each food group should be on their plates. The craft enables children to be involved and teaches them about food groups in a simple way. The bright colors are a lot of fun for children, and serve as a reminder for better eating, and portion control!

  1. Sketch out your drawing of the serving size sections. Use tape for straight lines and separate the sections.
  2. Start painting! Paint the colors you want for each section. Let it dry and do as many coats as you want to get full coverage.
  3. Let it dry overnight, just to make sure it's completely dry.
  4. Later place the plates in the oven, set to 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Leave them in the oven to cool. Then your done!
