Children look at food and nutrition differently than adults do. Sometimes they don’t even look at it, they just breath it in without even chewing. Some are picky and have roulette wheels for appetites. But whatever the case, the food groups look different in the eyes of a kid.
For starters, the idea that 5-6 categories can encompass ALL foods is kind of dumb. The food groups are kind of like a “See Jane Run” simplification of nutrition. But since dumb is commonly a passing grade in this world, let’s just go with it.
Not all of these categories and examples will apply to every child’s preference and opinions. For example, some kids might consider M&Ms more properly placed in the Portable category rather than Chocolate. Some may not like peanut M&Ms, considering them “healthy.” And some may not like chocolate at all, in which case, check for a battery slot, your child may not be real.
