Learn right in the aisles of your local VG's Grocery!
Students explore the aisles of their community VG's Grocery where they learn the importance of a balanced meal, portion size, and more while making real-world food choices right in aisles. This interactive learning experience engages students and teaches them to make informed healthy food choices using the MyPlate guidelines.
