Staying healthy is all about being intentional.

You have to choose the correct foods to eat and choose to exercise.

That’s why in elementary school, we learned about the food pyramid. Even though the pyramid has changed over time, the basic principles have remained the same: eat a balanced diet of foods with proteins, fats, vitamins, iron, and fiber.

We’re blessed that God created a variety of food in all different colors, textures, and flavors.

Download the printable activity sheets below to help your kids of all ages learn about the importance of a healthy diet.

Coloring sheet for young kids

This coloring sheet is great conversation starter to talk with your kids or grandkids about why certain foods are healthier than others. You can also teach them about how boys and girls around the world don’t always have access to healthy foods and why they need our prayers and help.

Word search

Do your kids need more of a challenge? Try out this word search together. Then, see if they can identify which of the five food groups below each word fits into:

1. Proteins

2. Fruits

3. Vegetables

4. Grains

5. Dairy

Coloring sheet for older kids (and adults too!)

Older kids don’t have to miss out on the fun. Here’s a coloring sheet they’ll enjoy too and one you might want to even print for yourself! After you’re done, share Proverbs 22:9 with a friend and think of creative ways you can share your food with the poor.

While your family hopefully has plenty of choices when it comes to food, this isn’t the case for many people around the world. When it comes to choosing the right foods to eat, the problem is there’s nothing to eat.

Some people have always lived in poverty and struggled to afford daily meals while others are now facing food shortages in their country caused by the pandemic.

Will you take a moment with your kids or grandkids today to be intentional not just about eating healthy yourselves, but also in praying for and helping others who are hungry?

Here are three ways you can get started:

1. Talk to your children or grandchildren about why some people don’t have enough food

2. Pray for families who are going facing hunger

3. Make a donation to help provide food and more for someone in need

All it takes is $14 to provide someone with essentials like nutritious food as well as clean water, hygiene kits, medical care, Bibles, and other physical help and spiritual hope.

And now through July 31, your donation will DOUBLE up to $75,000, thanks to a generous matching gift!
