Making a food guide pyramid is Requirement 3D for earning the Cub Scout Tiger Cub badge. If you search Google images you can find lots of blank pyramids and photos of food to choose from. I downloaded some and inserted them into two Word files. I made enough copies of the different types of food for five boys to participate in the activity. You can easily copy the images to make more, if necessary.
You could also have the boys cut pictures out of magazines to glue on the blank food pyramid, or they could draw the pictures.
Goals of food guide pyramid activity:
Know. With a family adult, have a healthy snack.
Commit. When is it difficult to eat healthy food?
Practice: What foods are best for your health and growth?
