Getting enough servings of fruits and vegetables each day can be difficult. Even for adults, it may take some planning. This lesson is designed to show students how they can estimate their servings of fruits and vegetables or count exact servings by using a recipe. It also provides them with an opportunity to practice meal planning.
The recipe conversion activity involves some basic math. The summer salad recipe is easier than the vegetable lasagna recipe. The program provider should make sure s/he is comfortable with the math involved with this activity before trying it with the students.
