Food Groups - Wooden Play Food

Planning a well-balanced meal is child's play with this wooden play food set. Items from the five food groups--including watermelon, milk, cheese, fish, eggs, and much more--are crafted of solid wood and come with four wooden baskets for sorting and storage.

  • Help the child to assemble a balanced meal in each basket. Explain that each meal must have one item from each food group.
