Food Chart

I loved this Food Chart and at the end of her blog post she writes " You can easily create one of these yourself." and that is exactly what I did, made a Food Chart that represents our family. The core things are the same, I don't like reinventing the wheel. However, there were some things like the sugar, fats, oil category or the particular foods we eat, mostly Organic, that I changed. I also added a water and vitamin check box.

We also will used printables by Teacher Created Resource. ABCTeach has a food group game for 3-6 year olds. Basement Workshop has a free printable.

The best part of this is accountability, for my Beloveds and myself. They can keep track of how healthy they are eating, and I can keep track of the foods I have in the house so they can stay healthy. If Z man should eat 2-4 servings of fruit a day, but his source of fruit is only coming from juice, I know I need to buy more fruit!

I used these tags and rings to keep the daily task,
food chart and wet ease marker together

We are also adding more accountability through our Daily Task Cards. A checklist of work to do for each child color coded and geared to their age. I don't believe in paying a child to do chores or work around the house, I don't get paid to chores around my own house. However, I do believe in giving them a salary for the work the school work they complete. So each column has an amount with a place to total it at the end of the day. The money management program we have is Dave Ramsey's Save, Give, Spend. I tell my Beloveds, if you work hard at school-work, you will get paid all of your life through scholarships, salary and bonuses. I doubt you want to use the actual one, but feel free to download it to get an idea.
