For the remaining 2 weeks of this round, we'll be following the guidelines of the Food Pyramid! This challenge will run Friday, July 15th - Tuesday July 27th!
Make a chart corresponding with the number of servings for each component listed under your calorie allowance choice! *1200 Calories - Grains 4 oz, Veggies 1.5 cup, Fruit 1 cup, Milk 2 cup, Meat 3 oz, Fat/Sugar limit 130 calories daily
1200 Calorie Chart
4 boxes for each oz of grains
5 boxes for each 1/2 cup fruits and veggies(2.5 cups = 5 servings)
2 boxes for each 1 cup milk/dairy
3 boxes for each oz of protein.
Keep fats and sugars to a minimum daily!
Friday - G,G,G,G ~ F,F,F,F,F ~ M,M ~ P,P,P
Each time you consume a component, you'll check off a box...ie: 3 oz pasta, check 3 boxes!
Fruits and veggies are combined, but please aim for more veggies as they contain fewer calories and sugar! Also try to get in a variety of color for a range of nutrients!
For each day that you check off all your boxes without going over you'll earn 5 points!
