Credit is given to all the websites mentioned in this Webquest, without which my students would not have learned as much about the Food Pyramid and the benefits of eating a balanced diet.
All clipart, with the exception of the "MyPlate" logo, came from Microsoft Office clipart.
The "MyPlate" logo came from the U.S. Department of Agriculture at http://www.choosemyplate.gov/print-materials-ordering/graphic-resources.html.
The following websites contain additional activities, information, tips and recipes related to the Food Pyramid.
